Clarity from Chaos: Kim Olver and Choice Theory
The 1998 book, Choice Theory: A New Psychology of Personal Freedom, is the primary text for all that is taught by The William Glasser Institute. Choice theory states that:

  • all we do is behave,

  • that almost all behavior is chosen, and

  • that we are driven by our genes to satisfy five basic needs: survival, love and belonging, power, freedom and fun.
