Abstract

Abstract:

This article delivers an overview of William Glasser's concepts of choice theory and reality therapy. Glasser's ideas are compared to those of Alfred Adler's Individual Psychology. Similarities are discussed, including the belief in social interest and belonging, the view of mental health, the purpose of behavior, the belief in behavior as a choice, and the therapeutic procedures that lead to change. The authors conclude that these approaches have dissimilarities, yet embrace similar skills that in practice are justified by their respective theories.
