In 1985 I was searching for some tools to help me help the youth I was working with at the time. I was a nurse in the Sexual Health Center. I felt that the youth had many more problems than I was equipped to help them with.
I decided to take a counselling course, theory and practice to find some of those tools. During this course, I was introduced to Reality Therapy and decided to take the training through The William Glasser Institute. After my first Basic Intensive, I started using my new tools and the youth started to respond. I was so grateful to finally find a method to help others that I continued with the training.
Little did I know at the time that I was embarking on a journey that would not only help me get the tools I was searching for but also would inspire me to change my life for the better. I became empowered to take charge of my life, a gift I would love to give to everyone!
I was eventually certified in 1988 and went on to the first level of Instructor. Today I remain totally passionate about Reality Therapy and continue to teach the William Glasser International Certificate Training Program. We were having a discussion on Facebook about Cognitive Behavior Therapy and it was suggested that Reality Therapy was the first CBT. In 1998, Dr. Glasser wrote the book Choice Theory, which explains human behaviour and why Reality Therapy is so effective. Today our training programs include Choice Theory.
If you are working with people and you want some tools to help yourself and others then join me as I do my first Basic Intensive in Person Online starting February 3, 4 and 5, 2021. It will be 9-5 Atlantic Time.
Yours in growing awareness
