Abstract

Research methods must be consistent with the Science of Unitary Human Beings if one is to study irreducible human beings in mutual process within a pandimensional universe. The Unitary Field Pattern Portrait (UFPP) research method was developed from the criteria of Rogerian inquiry and is a hermeneutic/phenomenological research method designed to create a unitary understanding of the dynamic kaleidoscopic and symphonic pattern manifestations emerging from the pandimensional human/environmental mutual process to enhance understanding of significant phenomena related to human wellbeing. The development of the Unitary Field Pattern Portrait (UFPP) research method has been described in detail (Butcher, 1994a, 1994b). The purpose of this paper is to explain processes, add detail, and revise terminology as a means to add clarity and percision to the form and structure of the UFPP research method to assist potential investigators. In addition, this paper includes the details for ensuring scientific rigor when using the UFPP.
