When I saw a related clip of the "The 7 Habits of Truly Miserable People", I had to clip another of Dr. Glasser's books, The Quality School . One of my favorite books. Dr. Glasser tells a great story where he teaches practical, yet effective ways to treat yourself and others with respect. His ideas about education and schools have developed a group of schools that follow his philosophies. It's good for learning and for emotional health of children, students, and the entire education community.
Shows that traditional coercive management in schools is the root of today's educational problems.
This should be required reading by every school administrator, every teacher, every board member and all university faculty involved in the training of teachers.
William Glasser, M.D., is a world-renowned psychiatrist who lectures widely. An author of many books, including Choice Theory, Reality Therapy, The Quality School, and Getting Together and Staying Together, he is the president of the William Glasser Institute in Los Angeles.
