Abstract [en]

Purpose: Two studies were conducted to develop and evaluate an instrument attempting to identify and measure personal values, values attainment and believability in thoughts functioning as obstacles in living a valued life.  Study one describes a content validity approach to the construction and preliminary validation of the Bull’s Eye Values Survey (BEVS), using a sample of institutionalized patients suffering from Epilepsy. Study Two investigated the psychometric properties of the BEVS with a sample of Swedish university students. Results indicate that the BEVS is sensitive to treatment effects and can differentiate between clients who receive values based interventions and those that do not. The BEVS subscales and total score appear to measure an independent dimension of psychological functioning that is negatively correlated with measures of depression, anxiety and stress and positively correlated with a measure of psychological flexibility. The BEVS also exhibits acceptable temporal stability and internal consistency. The study provides preliminary support for the BEVS as both a research and clinical tool for measuring values, valued action discrepancies and barriers to value based living.
