What if a Person Has No Goals?

Larry Davidson Ph.D., Priscilla Ridgway M.S.W. Ph.D.


What if a person has no goals? This question is raised often by providers who are concerned that the people they work with have given up on whatever hopes, dreams, or aspirations they may have had earlier in life or who, when they have asked the question “What goals do you have?”, have been met with an initial blank stare or a shrug. The process of identifying and setting personal goals provides the foundation for recovery‐oriented practice, however. The question of whether or not people have such goals, therefore, is an important one to address.
