Living by Your Values is based on the ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) model with a strong research base and broad use with college-age students. A main idea of this model is that when values drive attainable goals and a student is willing to encounter barriers along the way, that student is more likely to make life choices with integrity to self and others.


  • Learn how values clarification contributes to living your life with integrity.
  • Self-exploration of values and how these values impact life choices.
  • Practice with SMART goals.
  • Anticipation of potential barriers and exploration of willingness to persist in pursuit of value-driven life.  
  • Practice with the process of implementing actions based on values.
