A fascinating biography about William Glasser has recently been published. William Glasser, M.D. was a renowned psychiatrist and author of many books including Schools without Failure, Choice Theory, and Reality Therapy.
Dr. Glasser made major contributions to the fields of therapy, mental health, and education. His particular contribution to teaching were classroom meetings and having young people responsible for their behavior.
Here are some of the quotes from Dr. Jim Roy’s book that you can find on my website:
“Not teaching students how to function is like asking them to play a game without teaching them the rules.”
“Unless we can get rid of coercion we will never make even a dent in the problems of education. “
Discipline Without Stress (DWS) implements these ideas because the DWS model is totally noncoercive while not being permissive The adult is always in charge by using authority without coercion.
Following is my testimonial about the Jim Roy’s book, William Glasser: Champion of Choice on Amazon.com.
“Jim Roy’s biography is fascinating, and this book is a treasure. I have known Bill Glasser for over 20 years and have presented at many Glasser conferences. Reading about Dr. Glasser’s journey and Dr. Roy’s clear explanations of Dr. Glasser’s points in his numerous books on psychology, mental health, and education rate William Glasser as a major contributor to each of these areas. Anyone who is interested in becoming more efficient, improving relationships, and living a happier life will truly enjoy and learn from Jim Roy’s biography of William Glasser.
