In this companion volume to the bestselling Choice Theory, Dr. William Glasser and his wife, Carleen Glasser, have imagined typical conversations in real-life situations--between parent and child, two partners in a relationship, teacher and student, and boss and employee. On the left-hand page is a typical controlling order or threat, and on the right a more reasonable version, using choice theory, which is more likely to get a favorable response from the child, lover, student, or employee. Through these examples, the principles of choice theory come alive.

William Glasser, M.D., is a world-renowned psychiatrist who lectures widely. His numerous books have sold 1.7 million copies, and he has trained thousands of counselors in his Choice Theory and Reality Therapy approaches. He is also the president of the William Glasser Institute in Los Angeles.

From Our Editors

This book brings relevant theories into practice by demonstrating how families, workplaces, classrooms, and relationships can benefit if we learn to give up control. It uses real-life conversations between a parent and child, two relationship partners, a teacher and student and a boss and employee to illustrate the contrast between the controlling/threatening approach and the choice-theory approach. The Language of Choice Theory by William and Carleen Glasser is the companion to the best-selling Choice Theory.
