This volume will help practising counsellors improve their skills within the rational emotive behavioural counselling (REBC) approach. Following an introduction to the basic principles and practice of the approach, the book is organized into four parts which examine crucial REBC areas. In the first part, Windy Dryden and Joseph Yankura look at developing and maintaining a therapeutic alliance, covering such issues as developing a shared language with clients and ensuring that clients have reasonable self-helping goals. They go on to explore how REBC skills - such as identifying clients' core irrational beliefs - can be improved. In the third part, the authors discuss helping clients to use REBC between counselling sessions, for example by negotiating homework assignments. They conclude the book by examining how practitioners' personal and professional skills can be enhanced, for example through supervision and a rational self-care philosophy.
