Choice Theory for Kids!

Choice Theory for Kids

New situations invite new strategies and that is exactly what the Alethea centre in Dublin has done during the coronavirus crisis. Under the leadership of Norah Finn, she and her staff members have put together a series of online videos to introduce Choice Theory psychology to children.

You can visit the site here: https://www.facebook.com/watch/AletheaServices/  and you will find the first videos dated about four weeks ago. The series involved a short video each day for children and their locked down parents, with tasks built in to demonstrate Choice Theory ideas, and then a follow-up short input every evening.

Norah is a faculty member of William Glasser International and the Alethea centre relies heavily on Choice Theory psychology.

Choice Theory in Russia

One of the interesting developments arising out of the world-wide virus crisis is the increase in the use of video-conferencing technology.

Zoom meeting with Russian group

On Wednesday 6th May, our Russian faculty member, Sergey Bogolepov, had a meeting with some of his students and invited Brian Lennon to attend. In spite of the language barrier an exchange of ideas was possible thanks to Sergey’s interpreting. The questions were probing and the level of motivation of the group was impressive. But then what can you expect from the country of Lev Vygotsky?

William Glasser Quote:

„Since there will be no one left to talk peace after the next war, it makes good sense to break with tradition and hold the peace Conference first!“

Terry Lynch

Dr. Glasser invited Dr. Terry Lynch to write the foreword to his 2003 book, “Warning: Psychiatry can be Hazardous to your Mental Health”. Since then we have come to know that Dr. Lynch’s ideas are very highly compatible with the Choice Theory analysis of personal well-being and the different conditions that describe personal distress.

Terry has kindly offered open access to some components of his online courses about depression.
