Synopsis:

This practically oriented reader brings together the major writings of the past decade on rational emotive behaviour therapy (REBT). It is most famous for the ABC analysis which helps clients to understand that irrational beliefs underpin their disturbed emotions and actions and that by disputing those beliefs they can change their behaviour. Originally called rational-emotive therapy (RET), it is also closely allied to cognitive-behavioural therapy. An up-to-date overview by Albert Ellis, the founder of REBT, introduces its theory and practice. The book then addresses preliminary issues such as building a therapeutic alliance with clients, educating them about REBT, and assessing their problems. The bulk of the discussion that follows focuses on therapeutic intervention. Topics range over disputing irrational beliefs, activity and directiveness, force and energy, vivid methods and therapeutic efficiency. Chapters are included on the step-by-step practicalities of the counselling sequence and process, and on the flexibility and eclecticism that counsellors may often require. An afterword defends the tough-minded approach of REBT against the criticisms of a sometimes tender-minded profession. This reader will prove an indispensable resource both for trainee counsellors seeking an introduction to this approach and for more experienced practitioners already familiar with it.
