1 BRAGG’S REVISED LIFE STYLE ASSESSMENT FORM NAME: _Ms. Abimbola ___________________________________________________ __________________________ DATE: The Life Style is designed to depict an individual’s perceptions and convictions of the self, others, the world, and how one will respond to the tasks of life. This data will reveal a consistent movement toward the goal of the individual, which becomes the case formulation of the counselor or psychologist. DIAGRAM OF THE FAMILY CONSTELLATION The diagram of the family constellation should include a representation of each person residing in the household during the client’s developmental years (from birth to age 7-8) and any other person whom the client describes as significant to him or her during the ages of 0-7 (i.e. grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, god-parents etc.). Use a large circle to represent persons who are female and large squares to denote males. Inside the shape, list the first name, age, and five words (chosen by the client) to describe each individual. An asterisk (*) should appear beside the client’s name. The client’s siblings should be listed beside the client in chronological order. Siblings who are older than the client should be placed to the clients left while siblings who are younger than the client should appear to the client’s right. Also include the number of years older or younger each sibling is from the client. Use a + symbol (to denote older than) and a – symbol (to denote younger than). For example, a sibling who is 2 years younger than the client would appear to the right of the client and a -2 should appear beside that sibling’s name. When constructing the diagram of the family constellation, the client is asked, “I’d like for you to tell me who lived in your home during the time that you were between the ages of 0-7/8and, were there any other significant persons in your life during that time; I’d also like for you to tell me five words to describe each person”. Allow the client to give you the order to which names are added to the diagram. Extend upward for grandparents from the appropriate parental figure. For example, paternal grandparents would appear on a line above the client’s father. Extend siblings by age (oldest) from left to right (youngest) on the line shown beneath the parents.

Lifestyle Assessment
Family Constellation
Abimbola is the last child of Abayomi Aina, the father, and Olufunke Aina, the mother.
Abimbola is the youngest of three children. Abimbola lived with both her parents and her
siblings under the same roof. Despite that she had an elder sister, Abimbola used to go along
together as they played together most of the time. Her sister, Omobola, was rather reclusive,
which could be attributed to her moody temperament. Nevertheless, Victor and Abimbola
took care of Omobola whenever she had an asthma attack. Apparently, this shows effects of a
strong family unit, whereby they look for each other and co-operatively took care of each
General Statement
Abimbola is the youngest in a family of three children. She grew up with both parents
during her developmental stage years as well as puberty. Nevertheless, her mother passed
away later on leaving her father. Abimbola was close to her mother and looked up to her
mother since her sister seemed to be independent as well as bossy, which would make them
clash into a fight. Abimbola portrays a sociable attitude, whereby she chose friends that were
well behaved and smart. The latter is expected since her parents primarily advocated for
respect and obedience as the main values under their parenthood. This is a belief she carries
on into adulthood as she becomes engaged with the church.
Abimbola was able to do well in her education as she used to get A’s and B’s
throughout pre-school and elementary school. Her parents also facilitated this as they
emphasized on performing well in school. In turn, her day dreams and goals while in school
are seen to encompass upholding the values taught by her parents as well as make her parents



proud. Abimbola is also seen to love teamwork, as she helped her sister and mother in doing
household chores. As a child, her parents shaped her ambition to encompass growing up to
become an independent, fearless and God-fearing woman. This means that her parents upheld
religion in their household.
Due to her closeness to family, Abimbola grows up to become a married and Godfearing woman. Furthermore, she has maintained her social interactions close to the family,
since her best friend is her husband’s best friend’s wife. She does not have any insecurity in
becoming a mother, which is portrayed by her excellent relationship to children.
Abimbola also grows to become mentally stable, which could be attributed to the good
upbringing background. Her mother plays an important role in allowing her to be open with
her as well as educate her on sexuality. Furthermore, Abimbola has never addicted to any
substance or experienced trauma, but her most stressful moment was when her mother passed
away while she was a freshman. Nevertheless, she received counsel on the matter, which had
affected even her studies, and successfully recovered from the matter.
Her goals are currently similar to those her parents wanted her to be, which involves
living a healthy life and being a good mother to her children so that they can grow to be of
good behavior and be successful in every area of the their life. Her current life statement and
perception of life involves a radiant and optimistic life. Generally, she is currently happy and
proud for how her life has turned out to be.
As hardworking parents, they were able to provide for the household’s basic needs,
which involved living under their own house as well as having enough food and clothes.
Furthermore, their parents emphasized on respect and obedience as well as education, which
shapes Abimbola’s peer group that is made up of well-behaved and smart friends.



Siblings Relationship
Her elder sister, Omobola, is very different from Abimbola since she is a loner,
unfriendly, mean, but also a hard worker. As the first female child, Omobola portrays the
qualities of a leader, although she may come out too bossy at times. Her bossy demeanor used
to lead to fighting between the two sisters. Despite her attitude, both Victor and Abimbola
used to take care of Omobola when she got an asthma attack since they believed in the power
of a united family.
Nevertheless, Abimbola is very close to her elder brother, Victor, whereby they are
both considered to be sociable, polite, agreeable, as well as considerate. Victor is also artistic
and is passionate about sports. Abimbola is also a good listener and a follower, which was
reflected by the role she played within her peer group that includes being supportive and an
encourager. Her sensitive and shy characteristics show why she is more inclined into
literature. According to Kwiatkowska, Rogoza & Poole (2019), individuals that depicted
shyness were more likely to be good at literature since engaging in literature helped them
express themselves clearly than in person.
Abimbola and her siblings spent their developmental years under the care of both
parents, which is a sign of family solidarity. This is apparent through Abimbola’s childhood
fear of sleeping in her room alone. Furthermore, she grew up in a house of five individuals;
where in all of them were family. The core values that their parents promoted included
respect and obedience, which are vital for social interaction among peer groups. Furthermore,
her parents are indeed hardworking individuals as they were able to cater for the households
basic needs.
Family Roles Played by Each Child



Abimbola is the youngest of her siblings. She was closest to their mother, whereas her
elder sister was closest to their father. Their father was nonetheless distant from Victor,
which is mainly due to the male ego. Additionally, both Abimbola and Omobola used to help
their mother with the household chores, which enabled them to become develop a sense of
responsibility even in their adult life. Despite that Omobola seemed to be a loner as well as
exhibited a moody temperance, Victor and Abimbola did not neglect her when she got an
asthma attack because they were the ones who took care of her at such moments.
Family Values
Abimbola’s family values comprise of respect, obedience, prayerful and
independence. These values are based on Abimbola’s family attribute of putting God first.
Both respect and obedience are broadly stated in the Christian Holy Bible, whereby they are
part of the Ten Commandments. A prayerful attribute is also a sign of humility, thus it
exhibits a God-fearing character that is a key factor in the Christian religion. On the other
hand, independence is a fundamental part of the democratic system of government in the
United States. According to Tsesis (2015), independence in the US constitution comprises of
aspects concerning self-governance and human dignity.
Abimbola repetitively asserts that her belief system and ambitions were aimed at
becoming a God-fearing woman and caring mother so that her children would be well
behaved and smart. Furthermore, she turned out to be a religious woman and happily married,
which reflects the value system that their parents had enacted in their house as she grew up.
Apparently, they grew up to live by their parents’ expectations since they were diligent and
seemed to give in so much so that Abimbola and her siblings could have a good life.
Ultimately, Abimbola currently lives a life without insecurities and she views her future as
well as vision through an optimistic lens.
