Control Theory, as the name suggests, is a theory and Reality Therapy is a form of counselling. Dr. Glasser developed the therapy and found that Control Theory explained why it worked. He has since modified the control theory so much that he now calls it Choice Theory. Go back on some of the answers on this website, specifically "Whats the differnce between...2004-04-01 and "Strengths and weaknesses....2004-04-18. Cory and Cory's book of counselling theories covers Reality Therapy very well and the article 'Cory with Cathy' which you will be able to get on the main WGI website [linked to this page]gives you a handy little synopsis. i have send you an addition that will bring you to another helpful website. Regards.

Look up the "rogha" site that I referred to, for deeper information.
