EP00 Dialogue 08 - Brief Therapeutic Interventions - William Glasser, M.D., and Paul Watzlawick, Ph.D.

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.

Dr. Glasser will explain that there is such as entity as mental health and will define it in such a way that it is completely separated from what is now called mental illness and collected in the DSM-IV. He believes that by using Choice Theory, clients can be taught how to improve their own mental health. By doing this the medical model is no longer needed and should be replaced by a public health model.
