What is the theory behind this ACT bullseye worksheet?
The bullseye technique is used in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to identify one’s values in the following four important aspects of life which include work/education, leisure, personal growth/health and relationships. A value in ACT is not a goal but what matters the most in line with how one wants to spend the rest of their life. Once personal values have been determined a ‘bullseye’ diagram is used to visualise one’s current position with respect to living a life in line with their values. .
How will the worksheet help?
The worksheet will help individuals use the bullseye diagram to identify their current position in life with respect to fulfilling their personal values. The closer one is to the centre of the bullseye diagram indicates they are living their best life in that particular domain according to their personal values. The opposite is true as they move further away from the centre.
How to use the worksheet?
This worksheet is to be used after personal values in the four important domains of life have been identified. Use an X’ to mark the spot where you think you currently stand in that domain. Marking closer to the centre means you are living your life according to your values and as you move further away it means you have lost touch with your values. Briefly describe your marking positions for each domain.
