Tools from Others
A wonderful tool for identifying strengths is Martin Seligman’s VIA Survey of Character Strengths. I suggest this test to my clients as a way for them to get clarity about their values. I offer a follow up handout, Using your VIA Scores, so clients can learn how to integrate their strengths into their daily lives. See my blog post about this tool.
Dr. Matthew Whalley manages the Psychology Tools website. This is a treasure trove of useful tools for use in therapy. An incredible collection of useful handouts!
Need a list of questions to ask about yourself or your relationship? Neil Rosenthal has gathered dozens of quizzes from many authors on his Heart Relationships website.
The Dialogue vs. Debate handout contrasts the two styles of discourse. Adapted from a paper prepared by Shelley Berman, which was based on discussions of the Dialogue Group of the Boston Chapter of Educators for Social Responsibility.
