How to help people work out their values
In counseling work, I’ve noticed something.
Often people find it very hard to define what their values are.
Sometimes people use “value lists”, but using value lists can be like asking leading questions. It can misguide us.
One way to work out people’s values is through their strong emotional triggers to things and work backwards from there.
We can ask people what they love, hate or fearful of.
Often underlying those are their values.
