William Glasser – Choice Theory: A New Psychology of Personal Freedom
In this seminal book, Dr. Glasser explains how internal control psychology works to improve people’s lives. For progress in human relationships he explains that we must give up the punishing, relationship-destroying external control psychology that is by far the most dominant one in the world. He shows how anyone willing to learn this psychology can improve just about any relationship. A perceptive reader can readily understand how better choices ultimately mean personal freedom in any life circumstance.
“Technology has progressed… because we are willing to or have embraced a new theory or a new way to use an old one.” “In almost all attempts to improve human progress, for example, to improve marriages, families, schools, or work, there has been no operational change in theory. External control is so firmly in the saddle that even when we make a little progress, we are blind to the fact that we have given up external control psychology and are starting to use what is, in essence, choice theory. What I am addressing is our need to become aware that there is another psychology.” — William Glasser, M.D.
