William Glasser, M.D. taught that all human beings are born with at least five genetic needs, the need to stay alive, Survival; the need for affection and caring, Love and Belonging; the need to be able to make choices, Freedom; the need to have value, Power; and the need to enjoy life, Fun. How we perceive or understand these needs, and how we act to satisfy them each day, are the internal motivation for all of our behaviour. Dr Glasser taught that all our behaviour is purposeful in an attempt to satisfy these needs, and that we are doing the best we can at any moment of time due to the information and beliefs that we have.
Choice Theory Psychology, described by Dr Glasser, is the information upon which this program “Take Charge of Your Life” is based. With the concepts and beliefs of Choice Theory, every human being can manage their lives more effectively and learn to self-evaluate each choice of behaviour so that we can be productive and pursue happiness throughout our lives. In this program, the concepts of Choice Theory® will be presented for you to decide whether you think this theory of behaviour is accurate and helpful for you.
