Criminal Justice Dr. Glasser developed reality therapy in a detention facility for young women called The Ventura School for Girls in California. The book, Reality Therapy, describes some of the work he did there. Reality therapy, based on choice theory, has helped people look at new and more effective ways to deal with the various aspects of corrections. Reality therapy teaches that we need NOT be victims of our past or present unless we choose to be.
Dr. Glasser’s ideas have been used successfully with the criminal justice system, court-ordered programs such as domestic violence groups, adjudicated youth, gang members, parole officers, military police and civilian police officers.
