Counselling with Reality Therapy

Nov 1999


Reality therapy is a cognitive behavioural therapy method that continues to grow in popularity as a therapeutic approach owing to its wide applicability, its highly practical and interactive methodology, and its actual track record in counselling and helping people. This book forms an easy-to-use introduction to this approach and includes:

  • A discussion of the concepts behind reality therapy, choice theory, the counselling environment, procedures and special applications
  • Information on how this approach has a wide application, including developing responsibility, motivation, self-esteem, improving relationships, dealing with discipline and problems and addictions
  • Details of how this technique can be used in schools, by the probation service, in prisons, at work, within clinics and the health service and in many other areas where counselling is necessary.
