In addition to being on the Institute's teaching faculty, Judith served on the International Board of Directors as the second representative from the Northwest Region. During her term she was also a member of the Professional Development sub-committee responsible for completing the work of the first board and finalizing the training process for reality certified people who wanted to become Institute approved instructors.

Dr. Wm. Glasser

Judith first met Dr. Glasser in March 1979 when she attended her Advanced Intensive Training in Marina Del Rey, California. (Her Basic Intensive Training was held in Seattle, WA in August 1978). She was so impressed with how well Dr. Glasser's ideas worked she knew she wanted to be more involved.

The next step was to become part of The Institute's teaching faculty. Judith became a Practicum Supervisor in 1980, a Basic Intensive Training Instructor in 1981, and a decade later was

Training in various settings has been one of the highlights of Judith's work with The Institute. She's formally and informally coached faculty program participants in North America and Ireland; taught in Canada, Croatia, and Slovenia as well as here in the United States. She's taught all phases of the Certification program as well as the Practicum Faculty Programs. Judith has presented workshops at several of The Institute's International Conferences in North America and at the European Conference in Slovenia.

Developing training materials and presenting these concepts to a variety of people has been another passion. Judith has developed and implemented training for community colleges, the US Air Force, schools, counseling program participants, residential programs, churches, and people who just want to learn how to get along better with the people who are important in their lives.

With The Institute's permission, Judith modified the Intensive Training process so that people with Traumatic Brain Injuries could learn the Procedures That Lead to Change as well as understand the concepts of Choice Theory. People who've attended her trainings, workshops, and presentations come from every walk of life and a wide variety of professions (child protective service workers, drug and alcohol counselors, education, corrections, law enforcement, mental health counselors, parents, skills trainers, supervisors, teen specialist, and more).

Judith is looking forward to passing on these concepts that have obviously become a central part of her life. And she learns something from the participants in every training she does.

Since much of her involvement with Dr. Glasser was before digital pictures, you miss a picture of her with the Sydney Opera House in the background. Now in the digital age, you can see pictures of her adventures in England, Scotland and the US. Check out her Inspiration page to see a few of them.
