Just published in English,”Reality Therapy: Theory & Practice” makes a fascinating read both for those already familiar with Reality Therapy and for newcomers. The authors go beyond the basics of Glasser’s ideas and give new perspectives to the core concepts of Choice Theory. The book deals with a range of topics such as relationships, personality and personal well-being, giving the unique RT perspective on these. There are also many scripted examples of counsellor/client interactions and some interesting comparisons with other therapeutic approaches. The authors are Boba Lojk and her late husband Leon Lojk. Completion of the book became a labour of love for Boba after Leon passed away in 2014. The book has 200 pages and is available in Slovenian, Croatian and English.
It doesn’t happen often, but every once in a great while, there comes along a person that can popularize the truth in such a way that it makes sense to a wide continuum of people. In taking the fundamental principles of cognitive psychology and expanding on those truths in a creative manner, Dr William Glasser has given to the world an understanding of human behavior and accordingly, suggestions on how to live a life in harmony with humankind’s nature and better judgment. It is a study worth the investment. For some, it will be life-changing; for others, it will be a reinforcing of the better angels of our nature.
