This chapter describes how to the values clarification process is implemented, including four steps in any values clarification experience: choosing a value-rich topic, using values clarifying questions and activities, employing the valuing process, and creating an atmosphere of safety and respect. The seven valuing processes that are central to values clarification are discussed: prizing and cherishing, sharing and affirming, choosing from alternatives, weighing the consequences, choosing freely, acting, and acting with pattern and consistency. Counselor/therapist self-disclosure is discussed and guidelines provided. A final section shows how values clarification can be used in a variety of individual and group formats.

Keywords:   values clarification, prizing, choosing, acting, valuing process, valuing processes, self-disclosure, group, group formats
