Future Courses:

My next course will be “Creating and maintaining healthy boundaries”. In the near future I will also create courses on anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, suicide, and other important aspects of mental health that, in my opinion, are general misunderstood, to some degree at least.

Training in Reality Therapy/Choice Theory

Throughout my professional career, I have had a friendly association with Dr. William Glasser, a world-renown psychiatrist. We had many similarities and supported each others’ work. He loved my book Beyond Prozac; I wrote the Foreword to one of his books. As early as the 1960s, Dr. Glasser was talking about non-pathologizing mental health symptoms.  He created a training institute to teach Reality Therapy and Choice Theory to psychologists, counselors, social workers and educators. If you are interested in learning these concepts and methods, you will find scheduled training here: www.wglasser.com.
