Crazy: Is it all in your head?

The idea that follows makes some people bristle.

Taken from Counseling with Choice Theory the New Reality Therapy, By William Glasser, M.D.

‘We believe that the current accepted concept that clients are the victims of mental illness caused by neorochemical imbalance over which they have no control is wrong. If it was true, no psychotherapy could be effective. The so-called neurochemical imbalance that is cited as the major causes of mental health illness is a myth. The brain is not defective. Its chemistry is normal for the behaviors clients choose. Brain drugs such as prozac, may make clients feel better but cannot teach them how to connect or reconnect with people they need.”
