Description - Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy by Windy Dryden
Seminars by Professor Windy Dryden. See the man live and in action. To find out more and to book your place go to www.cityminds.com 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.
