Dig deeper into personal values with the Values Discussion Questions handout. This worksheet is designed to prompt discussion about values by asking in-depth questions that require exploration and critical thinking. Questions cover several topics, such as where values originate, how they change over time, and more. Learning about values is an engaging approach to goal setting, inspiring changes in behavior, and decision making. Additionally, values are a core component of several therapies, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
Prior to using this worksheet, we recommend your clients have a basic understanding of their own values (try the Values Clarification worksheet). Then, rather than rushing through each question looking for answers, use each one as a prompt for group or individual discussion.
