Glasser Training


Thank you for your interest in training in Dr. William Glasser’s Choice Theory and its application in counseling (Reality
Therapy); schools (Quality Schools); managing (Lead Management) and relationships in general.

Intensive trainings, whether basic or advanced, have the same content and follow a similar format. Basic trainings are an introduction to the concept of Choice Theory and the procedures that lead to change. Material is presented in lecture, discussion, and role play format. Videos of Dr. Glasser discussing his concepts or role playing are also used during the training process.

The William Glasser Institute requires that all intensive training leading to certification be facilitated by approved Institute faculty. It is also recommended that participants work with different instructors for each phase, especially the training phases. Fees for the Intensive Training include all materials and instruction.
