Describes the use of self-confrontation as a method for the investigation and clarification of the valuation system. The method gives an overall picture of the content and organization of the client's self and is at the same time a means to promote the reorganization of the self in the course of time. The method, which is illustrated in the case of a 19-yr-old male university student, has 3 parts: (1) construction of the valuation, (2) connection of each valuation with a standard set of affect-denoting terms for studying the (implicit) affective meaning of the valuations, and (3) discussion of results with the client. The method is recommended for the treatment of identity, identification, and relational problems.
