“The Practice of Choice Theory Psychology” by Brian Lennon explores the use of Choice Theory psychology in a range of counselling and educational settings. These include relationships, conflict, bullying, abuse, loss, responsibility, drugs, anger and the self. The Choice Theory perspective is explained and, in most cases, practical ideas are offered for counselling or dealing with these situations. Although set in the context of Glasser’s Reality Therapy, there are lots of ideas for counsellors from different theoretical backgrounds. This is a companion book to the author’s “The Practice of Reality Therapy”.
