He has been writing since the 60's and is the origintor of Reality Therapy which I think is based on Choice Therapy (or the other way around). Basically he claims there is no mental illness, even schizophrenia is based on relationships gone bad in the past, and that the only way to deal with problems is through improving present relationships. He asserts that there is no proof of brain disease in mental disorders (except, of course, diseases like Alzheimers) and hence no need for medications (I really liked that!) It's interesting that you discovered this so long ago, has his theories helped you in any way? I like focusing on the present and learning behaviors that will help me now, rather than visiting the past and getting distraught. Anyway, this is probably my latest obsession :-). take care, judy
