Self Assessments

Self Assessments are non-standardized self-evaluations that you can use to assess aspects of your life relevant to an authentic healing and connection process. These assessments, which should be used in conjunction with LP Workbooks, will show you where you need to make improvements if you want to heal and connect. For example, if you take the “How Chaotic is my World?” assessment and find that you and your family score in the red zone on the chaos scale, then if you want to heal and connect, you need to take steps to reduce the level of chaos in your house. The same thing goes for all these assessments. If you score in the yellow, orange, or red zones, you have work to do. The goal is to get all your scores down into the green zone. Once you are in the green zones it will be easier to heal and connect.

If you are a registered LP member , you can track your progress by taking the assessments multiple times over a time period. A summary of your scores is provided on the assessment  archive page so you can see the improvements you are making. If you notice specific issues,  you may want to take the assessment once a week, and discuss your results on the appropriate forum for guidance and assistance. The discussion forum links are provided on the assessment archive page.

  • How Toxic is My World? A self-assessment designed to give you an indication of how toxic your world is. The goal is to make you aware of toxicity in your environments so you can take steps to improve.
  • How Violent am I? The “How violent am I” survey helps you think about and address your personal contribution to negative and toxic environments. The survey addresses physical, psychological, and emotional violence with a view towards helping you identify and reduce violent behaviours.
  • How Chaotic is my World? The How chaotic is my world survey gives you a “chaos number” that you can use to assess the chaos in your life.

It is important to work to reduce the level of chaos in your home to near zero.
