Training Overview


The William Glasser Institute offers training in choice theory, reality therapy, and lead-management. The two main training programs are:

Choice Theory/Reality Therapy Certification


Faculty Training: Become a Faculty Member of The Institute

Choice Theory/Reality Therapy Certification 

Choice theory forms the foundation of what we teach and is based on the belief that we choose every aspect of our lives. If you are a person who interacts with others, then the Reality Therapy Certification training is for you! Our participants come from all aspects of life, from business people, parents, counselors, educators, probation officers, hair stylists just to name a few. Registering for the Basic Intensive Week will teach you the value of relationship building.

You will learn how to:

  • maintain healthy relationships by practicing the seven habits that bring people closer together.
  • use lead-management principles in working with others through ‘real life’ types of situations.
  • develop a more thorough understanding of mental health as it applies to education, management and marriage.

Although this training has been designed for people who work with people professionally, and is educational in purpose, participants have found the study of choice theory, reality therapy and lead-management to be extremely useful as husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, grandparents, friends and colleagues. You will learn how to use the seven habits that can improve every relationship in your life. You will begin the skillful use of the questions that promote change and begin to see a difference in your own life.

The first step in learning the tools that can change every relationship in your life, including with yourself, is to register for a Basic Intensive Week.


Faculty Training - Become a Faculty Member 

Once you have achieved the status of Reality Therapy Certified you can attend a Faculty Program to become a Faculty Member for The Institute.

The purpose of these programs is to ensure that faculty members who represent The Institute have the appropriate knowledge and skills to teach in The Institute certification process.
