Reviews - What do customers think about Values Clarification?
Not strategies, no focus Mar 24, 2006
Values Clarification (first edition 1972) by S.B. Simon, L.W. Howe & H. Kirschenbaum offers 76 different and separate exercises (not strategies as the authors call them) to help you clarify your values. The related and partially overlapping book In Search of Values (1993) by S.B. Simon offers 31 such exercises. Not all exercises will be equally appealing and useful to the reader. The authors do not help the reader tie the results of the separate exercises together in a straightforward and sensible manner. Better books on values are What Matters Most (2000) by Hyrum W. Smith, Lasting Change (1997) by Rob Lebow & William L. Simon, and Managing by Values (1997) by Ken Blanchard & Michael O'Connor. They offer more focused and coherent approaches to clarifying personal and group/organizational values.
Help Yourself Sep 30, 2005
This is a great book. I actually read it long ago and remembered it until now. The book has some really thought provoking questions in it for us all to consider. One problem: some of the language and terms are a bit old fashioned as the revision didn't bring it up to date for the millenium reader; but I recommend it anyway!
Still unhappy even though "you have it all"? Read this! Jul 12, 1997
Ever wonder why you're still not happy with your
life even though it seems like you have it all?
Do you feel uncomfortable when someone asks you what your future holds?
Can't figure out why seemingly little things mushroom into huge problems?
Many of us live our lives behaving how we think others would want us to or doing things a certain way because that's how our parents did it. Values Clarification is a series of self tests that will help you identify and understand, maybe for the first time in your life, what it is that is truly important to you and how to integrate those things into your life.
Each of the excercises is easy to understand and complete regardless of your education level. Another fantastic feature is that many of the excercises also have revised versions for you to use with children and what better gift for a child than a strong and grounded belief in their own values and morals?.
This book is a MUST READ for EVERYONE, so do yourself a great favor and get a copy, then
share it with those you love and even (especially?)those you don't!
A must for school counselors! May 10, 1997
Values Clarification is an excellent source for junior high and high school counselors. The information
and activities lend themselves perfectly for use in large class settings, smaller support group settings, and individual counseling sessions. The activities are eye-opening, interesting and very easy to facilitate. It is well worth the cost of the book.
