The William Glasser Institute Ireland is recognised by William Glasser International to run official courses in Reality Therapy and other applications of Choice Theory Psychology as developed by Dr. William Glasser.

Brief introductory talks may be organised by contacting WGII using details published at the bottom of this page.

A “Take Charge of Your Life” workshop is intended for the general public.

A “Basic Training Course” is the first step in formal Reality Therapy or Choice Theory training although many people who have no interest in further training find it a very complete entity in itself.

For those who wish to have full training in Choice Theory/Reality Therapy the different components are:

Stage 1 Basic Training Course
Stage 2 Basic Practicum
Stage 3 Advanced Training Course
Stage 4 Advanced Practicum
Stage 5 Certification


Those wishing to obtain a European Certificate in Psychotherapy using Reality Therapy have the option of continuing to this level after completing RT/CT Certification.

Further information on each of these courses is available under the relevant headings under COURSES in the main menu.
