Overview

Rational Emotional Behaviour Therapy (REBT) is a cognitive behavioural approach to psychotherapy that pays particular attention to the role that thinking and behaviour play in the development and maintenance of emotional problems. It is a relatively simple approach that is difficult to practice well.

In this fully revised second edition of The Fundamentals of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy: A Training Handbook, Windy Dryden and Rhena Branch recreate the atmosphere of an REBT training course. They alert trainees to the areas of difficulty that they are likely to experience whilst training in REBT, and demonstrate how to deal constructively with such problems. Verbatim transcript material between trainee and trainer is extensively used in order to highlight trainee difficulties and trainers' responses. In addition, this innovative training manual makes use of actual and constructed dialogue between therapist and client, and of peer counselling dialogues.

Key topics covered include:

  • How to present and explain 'ABC's of REBT to clients
  • Helping clients to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy emotions
  • Assessing meta-emotional problems
  • Goal-setting
  • Disputing irrational beliefs
  • Negotiating and reviewing homework assignments

A comprehensive and engaging read, this training manual will complement REBT courses, and will be welcomed by students, trainers and practitioners alike.
