Practicality and usability occupy the center of the reality therapy WDEP process. This workshop emphasizes advanced application through the use of metaphors designed to help clients determine the realistic attainability of their wants and the efficacy of their behaviors.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list one idea for each of the letters in the WDEP system of reality therapy.
  2. To describe two metaphors for helping clients evaluate their wants or behavior.
