Description

  • A complete introduction to REBT, an approach to CBT which argues that at the core of emotional disturbance lies a set of irrational beliefs that people hold about themselves and others
  • Essential for counsellors who are beginning to use REBT with clients - recreates the 'feel'of a training course and alerts trainees to difficulties they may experience when using REBT in practice
  • Covers all the basic theoretical and practical information that trainees need to begin using REBT, with special attention paid to disputing irrational beliefs and helping clients set goals
  • Windy Dryden is the world's best-known and most prolific name in REBT after its founder (the late Albert Ellis), and there is no direct competition to this unique handbook
