Metavalues – values for our values

According to Strupp (1980), clients/scholars are:

  • entitled to personal freedom
  • entitled to conducting their own affairs
  • entitled to have their individuality respected
  • entitled to not be dominated, manipulated, coerced, or indoctrinated
  • entitled to make mistakes and learn from them

As an educator/parent how might our own values be imposed upon a student and violate one of these values?

What is your metavalue?
