The concept of "relativity of values" i.e. that there can be a variety of positions in relation to a given issue, none of which has an inherent presumption of superiority, is an important professional commitment, linked to the ethical caveat of client self-determination. While mental health professionals non-judgmentally affirm the right of individuals to adopt values which differ from their own, (provided that the values chosen respect the life and well-being of others), they in fact tend to feel that the values which structure their own life choices are "correct" in an absolute, rather than in a relative sense.
