What is the theory behind this Basic Emotion Assessment Worksheet?

A Basic Emotion Assessment is a simple tool that can be used before therapy sessions to give the client a moment to think about how they have been feeling recently. This information can be valuable for the therapist when further probed. It can also serve as one of the many indicators of a client’s emotional improvement as therapy progresses. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet can help therapists to assess the emotional state of their client before beginning the therapy session. The client’s responses can help the therapist determine how to proceed with the session. Collectively the responses can also show how seeking therapy has affected the client’s mood over time. 

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet can be used at the beginning of each therapy session. Instruct the client to rate the different emotions based on how they have been feeling since their last session. Their responses can then be further probed to determine their reasonings.
