Dr. Glasser provides a range of case studies mainly relying on his experience but also including some fascinating fictional material. He illustrates not only how he deals with the case but his own thinking as he goes along. This book gives a unique insight into the mind of the therapist as he applies Choice Theory to the counselling process.
“I really enjoyed reading Reality Therapy in Action, and think it one of the most creative books on psychotherapy ever written. I especially recommend some of the main things he does, such as marital and parental therapy. They are most effective and deserve to be widely copied by therapists.” – Albert Ellis, Ph.D., president of Albert Ellis Institute for Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy
“I appreciate Dr. Glasser’s elaboration on the theme of creating satisfying relationships in our lives. I particularly like the existential emphasis on the role of choice and responsibility. This book reinforces the notion that we do have choices and that we contribute to our degree of happiness by how we think and act in our present-day living.” – Gerald Corey, Ed.D., A.B.P.P., professor of human services and counseling, California State University, Fullerton.
