"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.

William Glasser, who was born in Cleveland, Ohio, first earned a degree in chemical engineering from the then Case Institute of Technology and later became a psychiatrist. He found himself doubting much of the conventional psychoanalysis, in which often the patient is seen as the helpless victim of past traumas, and insisted that the cobwebs of the past be brushed aside and that the patient develop a plan of action for the future. Glasser's conviction that success breeds success and that failure breeds failure led him to develop his reality therapy, a remedy for people for whom conventional psychotherapy does not work and a prescription of use to people regardless of their circumstances. Glasser has also done much for and within the school system, dealing with the issues of motivation, quality in the school, and problems of delinquency. Glasser's books have been translated into many languages. He has wide experience as a psychiatrist in Los Angeles and has been a consultant to the school system there.
