A Set of Directions for Putting and Keeping Yourself Together


Robert E. Wubbolding & John Brickell

Based on the concepts of Reality Therapy, here are some simple and serious suggestions for feeling better, becoming happier, getting along with others, increasing self-esteem, and finding greater meaning and purpose in life. Your clients will learn that to reach their goals they must first take control of their lives and work hard, even when they don’t feel like it. Use this to improve your counseling strategies or as a self-help book for those in need.

This is an absolute “jewel” of a book! It is an invaluable resource. It can be used both as a tool for helping professionals and by individuals who seek self-help guides to living a more satisfying life. I use it regularly in teaching and counseling with a diverse clientele.

In addition, I have used it personally and have recommended it to friends and family. Everyone should own several copies of this book because they tend to “disappear.”
