Self-Care Assessment

How well are you doing in your own Self-Care?

The original assessment has over 70 questions. I pared it down to what I think are the most important areas under each category without any overlap. In this assessment there are 7 pages with 1 category per page and 4 areas of Self-Care to assess per category. You will answer 28 questions total.

This is not a comprehensive assessment, but an introduction to get you thinking about your own Self-Care. This is adapted from Transforming the Pain: A Workbook on Vicarious Traumatization. Saakvitne, Pearlman & Staff of TSI/CAAP (Norton, 1996). I originally found this as part of the University at Buffalo’s School of Social Work Self-Care Starter Kit resource.
