Reality Therapy

In today’s podcast we will look at Reality Therapy, developed by Dr. William Glasser. We briefly review the assumptions of choice theory and how those assumptions are translated into Reality Therapy. The majority of today’s short podcast comes from the Gerald Corey text, Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy.

Great podcast -- it helps in class.

I am an MSW student with a Ph.D. in anthropology (I was a professor for a long time). This is a great podcast and you are a great teacher! I love the format of the podcasts (covering everything from the history of the approach to the pros and cons). I have listened to nearly all of them since I subscribed, and even some of them more than once! I loved the podcast on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. I would like to suggest that future podcasts include the Family Therapy Model, Intake Interviews, PTSD, and Abraham Maslow. You might also consider talking about "hoax" therapies. I will think of more as I go along!

Candice - thanks for your kind words and excellent suggestions for future podcasts. I'm working on a couple of podcasts about family therapy and related treatment models. I like your idea about addressing "hoax" treatments. I'd also like to do a series on diagnoses (like major depressive disorder, ADHD, PTSD, etc). Thanks for subscribing!
