The Self Mandala HANDOUT
The Self Mandala is Satir tool that describes eight different universal human resources related to being in the world that can be ranked in order from most to least importance. The resources are Intellectual Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, Sensual, Contextual, Interactional, and Nutritional. Each part is of equal value, connected and interdependent, the focus of the exercise is on balancing across resources. This tool has been used to understand and help mange the impact of caregiver stress (Caston, 2009). I have found this tool particularly useful to understand which aspects of the self need attention in treatment and which do not. I developed a Self Care Rating Scale based on this exercise. On the scale are sample exercises that might enhance the domain that needs attention.
