Who decides what values are American values? What impact do these values have on health and human services workers and the delivery of services?

The American people decide which values are American values. Individualism and privacy are probably pretty universal American values. However, we are split on many issues that some claim are our values. "Family values" is one of these contentious issues. While the vast majority of people undoubtedly say they believe that a family is a mother, father, and young children, the number of single-parent households shows that this value is not achievable by many people.
