Certain values vary across the planet. I believe values are the core to why we do the things we do. Our values determine our actions, the people we surround ourselves with, and who we are. It's the reason our species is so diverse. Because almost every individual has their own idea on what are values, it makes it hard to say which values are correct and which ones are not. So to argue about which values are considered morally correct while others are not, the argument would just end up in circles because it is all based on one's own opinion.
However in the context of how clinical psychologists refer to values in the workplace, I believe we can all come to an agreement that these values are considered more of as moral obligations. It is typical to see values being thrown under the rug when it comes to scientific research for "the sake" of the research. This is where community psychologists have stepped in.
Community psychologists have successfully validated certain values as successful methods to live a righteous life in a thriving and harmonious community. The programs that community psychologists have come up with teach preventative measures rather than dealing with the problem AFTER it happens.
I believe values are the very reason Community Psychologists are confident in a social change. Values are the structure of our community and the sole reason for actions and behaviors that are exhibited by people. I belive values are very important, if not most important, aspect of community psychology.
