This self-assessment serves to heighten the awareness of the participants about balance in their lives. The emphasis is on assessing current situations, identifying values and goals, and examining personal objectives. The activity uses a combination of learning tools to stimulate thought and discussion, including brief lecture, the Family Index of Balance (a simple-to-use, 12-item self-assessment tool), and two facilitated exercises that identify current demands and strategies for handling the stress of these demands. The Family Index of Balance is the key learning activity; it is here that participants can see for themselves a picture of the current balance?or lack of balance?in their lives. Contributed by Jane Henderson-Loney.
