_______________________________________

This practical Reader brings together the major writings of the past decade on rational emotive behaviour therapy (REBT), originally called rational-emotive therapy (RET).

An overview by Albert Ellis, founder of REBT, introduces its theory and practice. The book then addresses preliminary issues such as building a therapeutic alliance with clients and assessing their problems. The bulk of the discussion that follows focuses on therapeutic intervention including: disputing irrational beliefs; activity and directiveness; vivid methods; and therapeutic efficiency. Chapters are included on the step-by-step practicalities of the counselling sequence and process. An afterword defends the tough-minded approach of REBT against the criticisms of a sometimes tender-minded profession.
