What counseling theory did reality therapy originate from?

I am a graduate student in a school counseling program. I am constructing a paper on Reality Therapy and its application in the schools. I have obtained my articles from the Journal of Reality Therapy, but I have found little information on its origin. Did it evolve out of Existential Psychology or another modality?
