Choice Theory is actually an explanation of all human behavior developed by Dr. William Glasser.
Choice Theory pretty much rids us of the idea that people are “misbehaving.” All anyone is doing is their best attempt to get something they want. Of course in the process, they may break laws, disregard rules and hurt others but those are really side effects of doing the best they know how to get their needs met. We are all doing our best—some of us simply have better tools, resources and behaviors at our disposal than others.
If we embrace Choice Theory’s concepts, then our function should be more to educate and help others self-evaluate the effectiveness of their own behavior. Know that often they will continue to do things exactly as they have because it’s familiar and/or because what they are doing really is getting them something they want. It is not our job to stop them, nor is it our job to rescue them from the consequences of their own behavior.

This two-hour teleconference recording of Choice Theory and Reality Therapy (CT/RT) is perfect for you if you want an overview of the basic concepts or if you have already learned these concepts but are seeking a concise review of CT/RT. In this recording, I go over the tenants of Choice Theory, providing an explanation of all human behavior. We cover the five basic needs, the Quality World, the perceived world, our comparing place and total behaviors. Then, I review the process of Reality Therapy and its connection to Choice Theory. Reality Therapy is a self-evaluation process by which the helper learns to ask the questions that facilitate a person's self-evaluation of their behaviors as they relate to the accomplishment of their stated goals. This is a great process for anyone to practice--couples, parents, counselors, social workers, psychologists, teachers, nurses, clergy, business leaders and anyone who finds themselves in a position of trying to help others or even themselves.
