Choice Theory Education Conference: Sacramento Saturday, May 30
Date:5/20/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Intercoast College, Sierra Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, and Strategies for Change will host the William Glasser Institute's annual West Region Choice Theory Conference on Saturday May 30 at the Hilton Sacramento Arden West. The conference features a distinguished roster of mental health professionals discussing critical topics including education, public mental health, addiction treatment, and post traumatic stress disorder among veterans. Registration is open to the public.

Choice Theory was developed by renowned psychiatrist William Glasser who redefines mental health as a public health issue and uses it to help people increase satisfaction with their lives and relationships. Glasser's theory states that through understanding one's needs and power to make personal choices, people may increase happiness and improve their relationships. Main tenets teach us that human behavior -- comprised of thoughts, actions, emotions, and physiology -- is chosen, and all we can receive from the people and environment around us is information. Choice Theory presents an alternative to the predominant psychology that is largely based on coercion -- external control of others.

Since 1967, WGI has educated more than 75,000 people in over 25 countries about Choice Theory. This conference focuses on the application of Choice Theory to current social issues with a profound impact on mental health and quality of life. Among those speaking at this year's event will be Dr. Glasser and his wife Carleen, who together have published more than a dozen books on the topics of marriage and relationships, addiction, management in the workplace, education, and other areas of mental health.

Other speakers include: Dr. COL. (Ret.) Billings -- supporting veterans suffering from PTSD; Resa Stendel Brown -- building educational processes and environments that enable children to develop their individual brilliance; Dr. BJ Davis -- What is Recovery, A Quality of Life Perspective; Jack Harnden -- Understanding Total Behavior in Educational Concepts; and Mike Rice -- author of A Choice Theory Approach to Drug and Alcohol Abuse. Attendees will gain insight into powerful and simple principles that can immediately and profoundly improve the quality of their personal and professional relationships.

    SATURDAY, MAY 30
    HILTON SACRAMENTO ARDEN WEST
    2200 Harvard St, Sacramento, CA 95815
