A case study applying Parse’s theory of human becoming to a pneumothorax female patient that had experienced a car accident is presented. The three principles of Parse’s theory are structuring meaning through the articulation of the patient’s values and experiences; cocreating rhythmical patterns of relating in a mutual process with the universe, such as revealing–concealing, enabling–limiting, and connecting– separating; and powering unique means of being recreated through the process of transformation. Three health problems of pain, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) were identified through communicating with the patient. Nursing interventions entailed using the communication applications Line and Facebook to conduct therapeutic communication with the patient to empower her positive thinking. The interventions also involved applying individualized music to encourage the patient to originate her transformation process and teaching rehabilitation skills. All of these methods facilitated overcoming the three health problems. The author experienced a connecting–separating relationship with the patient in a paradoxical unity while practicing the nursing interventions. Parse’s theory can be recommended to be applied to people who have experienced accidents or tragedies that result in PDST.
