- Pub. Date:
Windy Dryden is known to counsellors and psychotherapists worldwidefor his accessible, interesting and useful books on many aspects ofhelping people to change and cope. Rational Emotive BehaviourTherapy (REBT) is, in fact, a field of special interest to him, andthis book represents a timely combination of his special expertisein this area and a response to the growing need for brief-timelimited methods for counselling and therapy. Among the many bookson rational emotive behaviour therapy this is one of the few whichprovide concepts and methods in the context of a brief therapyprocess. Practitioners will find in this book useful insights andguidance on applying these methods throughout the process oftherapy, including building the working alliance, assessment,formulation, and work both within and outside sessions. The wholeprocess is illustrated by a case study which reflects the problemsof real-life work with a client. From a pre-publication review: " I have read the manuscript andfind it to be excellent in practically all respects, and indeed tobe one of the very best of the many books that Windy has publishedon REBT. It not only tells counselors and therapists who will readit how to conduct Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy briefly andquite adequately, but it also will be very useful for anytherapists who want to conduct regular REBT, in more than theeleven sessions that Windy emphasizes in this book. So it is a fineintroduction to REBT, but it also will be good for many experiencedREBTers who want to see exactly what Windy does in his therapysessions and what methods might be helpful in their own work."Albert Ellis, PhD President, IRET, New York, USA This book appearsin the Wiley Series in Brief Therapy and Counselling Series Editor:Windy Dryden Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK
