Overview

"Dr. Glasser's therapy is based on inescapable truths: Meaningful relationships are central to the good life, the choices we make will determine their quality, and we can only create them if we take responsibility for ourselves without controlling the other person. His vivid stories and dialogues illustrate how to go about creating a good life." — From the foreword by Peter Breggin, M.D.

In this long-awaited continuation of his most successful book, Reality Therapy, Dr. William Glasser takes readers into his consulting room and illustrates through a series of conversations with his patients, exactly how he puts his popular therapeutic theories into practice.

Dr. Glasser introduces us to among others:

  • Jerry, who is trying to overcome his obsessive-complusive disorder,
  • Bea and Jim, a couple who want to rebuild their relationship after Jim's affair, and
  • Roger, an alcoholic in desperate need of a meaningful relationship

These vivid, almost novelistic case histories bring Dr. Glasser's new version of this therapy to life, and show readers how to get rid of the controlling, punishing, i know what's right for you psychology that crops up in most situations when. people face conflict with one another.

Practical and readable, Reality Therapy in Action is Dr. Glasser's most accessible book in years.
