Encyclopedia > William Glasser

William Glasser, M.D. is an American psychiatrist born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1925, and developer of Reality Therapy and Choice Theory. He is notable for having developed a theory that explains how and why we behave. His ideas which focus on personal choice, personal responsibility and personal transformation are considered controversial by mainstream psychiatrists, who focus instead on classifying psychiatric syndromes, and who often prescribe psychotropic medications to treat mental disorders. Dr. Glasser is also notable because he has used his theories to influence broader social issues such as education, management, marriage, and recently advocating mental health as a public health issue, to name a few. Last, but not least, he is notable because he warns the general public about his profession and the dangers therein. Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that studies and treats mental and emotional disorders (see mental illness). ...

I>Reality Therapy, by William Glasser, MD (518 words)
Glasser rejects the concept of mental illness and focuses on the patient’s behavior in his approach to therapy.
Glasser defines responsibility as "the ability to fulfill one’s needs and to do so in a way that does not deprive others of the ability to fulfill their needs." " Any behavior which does not match this standard is regarded as irresponsible.
Although Glasser may be too dismissive of mental illness, especially in light of recent research showing a physiological basis for some types of mental illness, his approach to therapy is a solid one for many cases, particularly those which bring parishioners to their pastors.
