Overview

Personality Theories: Critical Perspectives is the groundbreaking, final text written by Albert Ellis, long considered thefounder of cognitive behavioral therapies.

Without condemning the founding theorists who came before him, Ellis builds on more than a century of psychological research to re-examine the theories of Freud, Jung, and Adler while taking an equally critical look at modern, research-based theories, including his own.
