Today is the birth date of the late Dr. Willam Glasser, world -renowned psychiatrist who believed in working with people to develop better relationships. I am honoring him today by speaking into some of the things I have learned from him.
First, I met him and his work in the mid 1980’s when I was working with youth and I wanted to find some tools to help the youth who seemed to have so many problems. Little did I know that when I studied his ideas that it would have such a profound effect on me!
He taught me that the reason most people see the help of a counselor is because there is a relationship problem somewhere in their lives that is not the way they want it to be. Helping people develop better relationships lead to a very high level of happiness.
He taught me a communication process that has helped me help so many over the last 28 years. This communication process has taught me to get out of the way and allow my clients to find their own inner resources.
I am thank-full that he started a movement of creating a world where people learn to experience happy relationships
He was my teacher , friend and mentor for over 25 years. Happy Birthday Bill!
We miss you!
