A Wounded Psychotherapist: The Childhood of Albert Ellis, and the Limitations of Rebt/CBTby Jim Byrne, Dr Jim Byrne
This book involves a psychoanalysis of Dr Albert Ellis and his Rational system of psychotherapy. It represents an attempt to deconstruct Dr Albert Ellis's story of his childhood, with a view to rescuing 'Little Albert', who has been ignored and discounted by Older Albert, just as he was ignored and discounted by his own parents. It also seeks to evaluate his theory of therapy, and to try to identify links between his major childhood experiences and his adult theories of human behaviour.
