The Wellness Assessment is a brief survey that examines wellness over the past week. Statements such as “I’ve felt happy” and “I’ve been able to focus” are rated on a 5-point scale. The Wellness Assessment was designed to be completed in just a few minutes, making it easy to include as part of a check-in routine.
We suggest using this assessment at regular intervals throughout treatment, or as a weekly check-in tool. Looking back at the results of past assessments can help highlight the positive changes clients have made throughout therapy, especially when those changes have been gradual and difficult to notice in real time.
The Wellness Assessment is not diagnostic. However, it can be an excellent resource for checking in, getting your client thinking about their week, and tracking change over time.
