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
