EP00 Invited Address 7 Part 2 - Reality Therapy in Action



EP00 Invited Address 7 Part 2 - Reality Therapy in Action

Featuring William Glass, MD, with discussant Irvin Yalom, MD.

Moderated by Ruth McClendon, MSW.

 

After 35 years of experience, Dr. Glasser has now updated his original Reality Therapy. It now is based on his new theory of how people function, called Choice Theory. Because this theory eliminates what Dr. Glasser believes is a hindrance to therapy, talking about the past or focusing on the symptom, it is effective from the first session and can be completed in ten sessions or less with most clients.

 

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list three ways that Choice Theory gives the therapist information about the client.
  2. To list three ways Choice Theory allows the therapist to get to the core of a problem.
