If you work in health, social care, or another helping profession, or you are a student in training, the following Inventory will help you assess, and then reflect on, your personal and professional resiliency as well as levels of personal and professional self-care. It will also help direct you towards the areas of your life that need most attention.
This Inventory was developed by Thomas Skovholt, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Minnesota, and co-author the book The Resilient Practitioner (now in its 3rd edition). He has developed a comprehensive understanding of ‘relationship-intense’ professions where the welfare of the client, patient, student, advisee, mentee, or member of religious community etc. is primary, and the potential impact of working with those who are suffering or in need.
