Self-help expert Dr. Sidney B. Simon has been helping people make positive changes and find personal clarity for decades. “Values Clarification” is what he calls the method that he details in his workbooks. Those exercises take readers step by step through various aspects of their lives to find new perspectives on their decisions and beliefs.
Dr. Simon’s work has applications in many professional settings, from academic counseling to job coaching. The thought-provoking questions have even found success in therapy settings, bringing families together and solidifying romantic partnerships. His other books and articles reveal that adventure is among his strongest values in his life.
Outside of his writing, Dr. Simon is a private person. Now in his ninth decade of life, he enjoys cycling and staying active in general. His wife, Suzanne Simon, co-authored “Forgiveness: How to Make Peace With Your Past and Get on With Your Life” with him.
