William Glasser Biography
(Developer of reality therapy and choice theory)
Birthday: May 11, 1925 (Taurus)
Born In: Cleveland
William Glasser was one of the most renowned American psychiatrists who dodged the theory of chemical imbalances to come out with his choice and reality theory that claimed that destructive behaviours displayed by humans were a part of unconscious choices that they eventually choose to. He further added that the choice of an individual is the result of the comparison that he makes from a quality world that he presumes should be and the reality that he faces. Though controversial, his theories have been famous in the world of psychiatry for the personal responsibility and personal transformation that he put in them. Whatâ€™s more, he did not limit his theories to a single branch and instead applied them to broader social issues such as education, management and marriage. Unlike other conventional psychiatrists, he believed that displaying a certain behaviour may be the result of unhappiness that a man faces and not necessarily the outcome of a mental disorder as claimed by others. His theories though debatable attracted the attention of a large number of teachers, drug counsellors, personal therapists and general public.
