  1. How exciting!! Over in England I had the opportunity to attend an Adlerian workshop!!! It was a parenting workshop...but I was floored by the amazing applications to education and have one of their books.

    I am looking forward to this. Adlerian complements what I have read on Glasser's Choice sorts of explains the thinking behind actions.

    See you there!

    I agree with Mrs T! I have been certified in choice theory and I love how Jane's work compliments it and explains the developmental milestones and expectations and the focus on parenting. Her books are well writen and easy to read and understand. I LOVE her website and all she has put into it to support people in strengthening relationships and increasing happiness!
