European Institute for Reality Therapy was established to disseminate the ideas of Dr. William Glasser and his Choice Theory in the personal and professional lives of the general population with a view towards contributing to the quality of mental health of individuals and society.



 Choice Theory explains human behavior and how through this we can learn how to harmonize with the environment, particularly with other people, so cooperation is our basic value. Cooperation based on trust and respect. We believe that nurturing good relationships are the prerequisite for a happy life that is not possible without respecting differences. We believe that our success depends on the quality of our work.  Therefore, lifelong learning based on self-evaluation is our basic guideline.
