About the Author:

Michael Rice is a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor who is certified in Reality Therapy and Choice Theory by the William Glasser Institute. Choice Theory differentiates from conventional psychiatry that diagnoses mental illness and brain disorders for conditions that have no pathology and are treated with psychotropic medications. Choice Theory is based upon personal choices, personal responsibility, and personal transformation. What is being diagnosed and medicated as a mental illness is, in reality, the behavior of someone who is acting out of frustration and unhappiness. The unhappiness and frustration is the result of an unsatisfying relationship with someone important to them . . . something that is occurring in the present. The frustration and unhappiness is the result of several unsuccessful attempts to control a situation that will result in an acceptable relationship. The relationship problem may also be the client's own relationship with him/herself. Mike has been in private practice since 1998 and over the years has helped over four thousand clients for substance abuse and several other behavioral health and emotional concerns. His years of practice and experience has encompassed group therapy, one-on-one, and couples counseling, helping others to better understand themselves by teaching Choice Theory methods of improving their relationships with the important people in their lives. Mike has been an active member of the William Glasser Institute, having served as the Regional Director of the Western states as well as having served on the U.S. Board of Directors of the Institute. Mike has presented several workshops at conferences in AZ, CA, NV, TN, CT, and Bogota, Columbia. He has presented at the AZ Psychological Association and the Sierra Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence in Sacramento, CA. Along with Dr. Kenneth Larsen, Mike co-emceed the opening ceremonies of the William Glasser International Conference at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles in June of 2012. Mike remains the CEO and Director of Court Counseling Services in Mesa, AZ, which he started in 1998. He continues to assess clients for substance abuse, teaches life-skills, and shares his experiences with client issues and Choice Theory applications in his books and articles.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. 128 pages. Happiness is a state of mind that everyone seeks to attain and maintain each and every day of their life. All of our daily behavior serves the purpose of acquiring that happiness. We have certain basic genetic psychological needs and in order to achieve happiness, we are hard-wired to seek to have these needs met. If not achieved, a person will develop any number of creative behaviors in an attempt to get these needs met or to compensate for their absence. It could be stated that the struggle for happiness is the driving force behind what may be considered to be normal, as well as abnormal, behavior. Happiness Is Just a Bowl of Choices explains how we process information; how External Control Psychology is behind the majority of all unhappiness; the Seven Deadly Habits that destroys relationships; Our Quality World; Our Five Basic and Genetic Needs that motivate all of our behavior; the Creative Mind; our Behavior Systems; Total Behavior; and finally, the three ways to resolve all unhappiness and conflict in ones life.
