Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy
A Reader

Edited by:
  • Windy Dryden - Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK

February 1995 | 328 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
"REBT is an eclectic form of therapy where a broad range of interventions can be used by practitioners informed as they are by a decided theoretical perspective. This book would be a useful source of information for students and more experienced practitioners seeking an introduction to the method." --The Therapist Anyone looking for an authoritative collection of all major writings on rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) will find this book a must. After an up-to-date overview by Albert Ellis who introduces REBT, contributors address 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, including disputing irrational beliefs, activity and directiveness, force and energy, vivid methods, and therapeutic efficiency. This volume will prove an indispensable resource both for trainee counselors seeking an introduction to this approach and for more experienced practitioners already familiar with it. "As an REBT therapist myself, I found much to learn from in these authoritative chapters in order to enhance my own practice. . . . I hope this book does attract a large readership within the counselling community and thereby leads to a more informed and balanced assessment of REBT." --Counseling Psychology Review
