Glasser Basic Intensive Training will teach you that…

  • All behaviour is purposeful.
  • The only person you can control is yourself.
  • All behaviour is chosen.
  • All long-lasting psychological problems are relationship problems.
  • What happened in the past was painful and has a great deal to do with who you are today, but re-visiting this painful past contributes little to what you need to do now.
  • We are driven by five psychological basic needs: love and belonging, personal power, fun, freedom and one physical need, survival.

What is the Cost?

The cost of the training is $535.00 per person, including all materials, a copy of William Glasser’s book Choice Theory: A New Psychology of Personal Freedom, and 27 hours of instruction.

Private Glasser Basic Intensive Training

I am also available to travel and teach Glasser Basic Intensive Training for specific groups. This training would be closed to the public. I would provide all materials and the cost would be negotiated and would depend upon the number of participants.
