Counselors and clients alike have values that guide their daily decision-making. When counselors’ values differ from their clients, they may experience internal conflict or dissonance. This conflict can interfere with the therapeutic relationship thereby reducing positive outcomes. To this point, there are no instruments that measure this experience. In this study, the Values-Based Conflict Inventory was created and content validity established using a mixed-methods approach with subject matter experts (N = 5). A pilot study (N = 21) was conducted wherein participants took the Values-Based Conflict Inventory. Descriptive statistics were then analyzed.
