William Glasser, MD
Every thing William Glasser, MD has ever written is useful for people
who are interested in totally workable, proven solutions to making schools
peaceful places where kids eagerly go to learn. "Reality Therapy," (1965)
set out the principles of doing practical, successful counseling that
influenced generations of therapists (including me). Another early book
was "Schools Without Failure" (1969) which described how he and his colleagues
totally turned around a middle school. His current works, which are totally
germaine to making schools safe, wonderful experiences for everyone, are:
"Choice Theory: A New Psychology of Personal Freedom"(1998) which presents
a totally workable solution to all personal and interpersonal problems.
People, couples, schools and communities that have adopted this theory
have been transformed. Totally to the point of creating better school
environments are three books. "The Quality School: Managing Students Without
Coercion," "The Quality School Teacher," "Choice Theory in the Classroom"(all
three 1998) and a brand new one, "Every Student Can Succeed" (2001). All
of these are available, on-line, from The
William Glasser Institute Bookstore
