In memory of one of our very first instructors, Richard Pulk, we have an annual day focusing on professional development of our members.
After Dr. Glasser himiself gave the first RT/CT course in Dublin in 1985, he sent Suzy Hallock Bannigan to continue his work in 1986. As the demand for training grew, Suzy brought along Richard Pulk in 1987.
From 1987 to 1996, Richard became very highly respected both as an instructor, as a person and as a friend among all the Irish students of Dr. Glasser’s ideas. Dick, as he was known to us all, gave a total of 23 courses in those nine years. His knowledge of RT/CT was impressive but more noteworthy was how he lived out the principles of Choice Theory. He was a wonderful listener, always showing total respect for those in his company, and there was nothing he enjoyed more than a good laugh.
Sadly he passed away in 1998 after a short illness. We established this special day to remember him. Dr. Glasser always claimed that we could sometimes get strength from the past and that is exactly why we choose to remember Richard Pulk. He was and continues to be an inspiration to us all.
