Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy: Basic Concepts and Applications
Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is a treatment modality developed originally as Rational Emotive Therapy (RET) by Albert Ellis. It shares some commonalities with other cognitively based therapies that include Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy. REBT is a short-term form of psychotherapy that helps you identify self-defeating thoughts and feelings, challenge the rationality of those feelings, and replace them with healthier, more productive beliefs.
