Self- Care
The Self-Care Assessment can be used to examine the ways in which you are practicing self-care and whether there are imbalances across different domains of well-being. It may also give you ideas for additional things you can do in the future to help prevent stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue, and also to maintain and enhance your well-being. (If you have worked through the “Developing Your Self-Care Plans” section – as we would encourage you to do – you may have already completed this assessment.)
Childhood Trauma
Difficult early life experiences may put you at increased risk for retraumatization experiences while working with clients who report their own trauma histories. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study (Felitti et al., 1998) examined the prevalence of childhood abuse and household dysfunction in a large adult sample and found a linear relationship between the number of events experienced as a child and heightened risk of a range of physical illnesses in adulthood. With their brief ten item measure, theACE Score Calculator, you may calculate your own ACE score by adding up the number of items you endorsed. For more information on the findings of the study see the article by Felitti et al. (1998).
For more information on retraumatization and secondary/vicarious traumatization, please consult the articles under those headings listed in our Self-Care Bibliography and on our UBLearns “Self-Care for Social Workers” website (you will need to log into UBLearns to access it).
The Holmes-Rahe Life Stress Inventory is a widely used measure of cumulative life stressors over the preceding year. Higher scores on this measure indicate that you are at increased risk of psychological stress and physical illness.
To assess more recent stressors and stress we have included three other measures:
Where is Your Time Going? can give you a good idea of how you are spending your available time and why there never feels like there is enough of it.
Stress Warning Signs and Symptoms lists a range of physical, behavioral, emotional, and cognitive symptoms that can help you identify when you are becoming stressed.
Are You Stressed? assesses the extent to which you endorse the types of experiences and complaints that stressed people report.
Additionally, the Lifestyle Behaviors checklist can give you an idea of the negative and positive ways in which you typically manage your stress. (If you have worked through the “Developing your Self-Care Plans” section, you may have already completed this measure.)
