The Human Givens Institute (HGI)

The Human Givens Institute is promoting an online version of the Emotional Needs Audit (ENA), which is designed to survey how well people's emotional needs are being met in the UK using the human givens principles. We hope this will become a good source of ideas for journalists writing about mental health and social issues. It will also serve to explain the human givens to anyone taking part in the survey or reading the results! ENA is a useful self analysis tool for any member of the public to fill in to see how well they are doing at present. ENA has been in use for some time by therapists, teachers, GPs and even a firm of solicitors. Go to the online survey at: www.enaproject.org.
