As I mentioned in a previous post, I am part of a team of researchers, evaluators, and practitioners who are interested in identifying, improving, and using tools that assess connection to nature. We are in the process of developing a guidebook that will feature tools that can be used by both researchers and practitioners to measure connection to nature.
Another tool that we plan to feature is the Inclusion of Nature in Self (INS) Scale that was developed by Dr. P. Wesley Schultz (see attached for a copy of the tool).
Has anyone used this tool? If so, in what contexts and for what purpose?
Do you have any advice for others using the INS scale to assess connection to nature?
Do you have any suggestions for ways to adapt the scale for different audiences?
