Reality Therapy is based on two principles: 1) a need for love, a meaningful and reciprocal relationship with a responsible person. 2) A need for a feeling of self-worth, self-esteem, self-respect. Although the two needs are separate, a person who loves and is loved will usually feel that he is a worthwhile person, and one who is worthwhile is usually someone who is loved and who can give love in return.” The reality therapist works actively with the client to help him meet these needs, and the emphasis in treatment is on here-and-now events in the clients’ life, rather than on past events (as in psychoanalysis).
