Besides Scientific Argument of Reality Therapy, written by Leon Lojk, reality therapy has never actually been presented in a broader theoretical context. In addition to deepening understanding of total behaviour or understanding of the organism as an operationally closed, self-regulating system, understanding of personality, the relationship between the individual and their environment, understanding the concept of relationships in light of choice theory, the beliefs about human behaviour that underlie our actions and understanding mental health, Theory and the Practice of Reality Therapy by Leon and Boba Lojk presents reality therapy in relation to other psychotherapeutic approaches through some similarities and differences between them.

With regard to the reality therapy theory of practice, so far, only structured (procedural) reality therapy has been available in the literature. Glasser called it the old reality therapy and advocated therapy using choice theory, which he called the new reality therapy. This is the authentic approach of the therapist, who himself lives in accordance with choice theory beliefs, which requires profound changes in the understanding of human behaviour. Until now, it has not been possible to find a description in the literature of how the process of new reality therapy flows, except for the author’s practical presentation of working with clients. These pages present for the first time the new reality therapy theory of practice through formulation, the relationship between therapist and client, and the theory of change in reality therapy. How reality therapy looks in practice is evident from practical examples of working with clients. The offered reading is certainly welcome to participants in reality therapy training and to reality therapists, practitioners and those who want to learn more about this approach.
