About This CourseBeginner

R.E.B.T or Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy to give it it’s full name is a modern effective therapy system that was originally thought up by Albert Ellis during the 1950’s.

R.E.B.T is sometimes referred to as “rational emotive therapy” or simpler still, as “rational therapy”.

R.E.B.T is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that is focused on helping clients change irrational beliefs, and is one of the very few therapies in psychology that has evidence in support of its effectiveness.

R.E.B.T is known as the rational therapy because at its core, this most modern of therapies is all about understanding how we make sense of our emotions.

Everything we feel and everything we do involves emotions, so Ellis developed this action orientated approach to psychotherapy, which produces results by helping clients manage their emotions, their cognitions, and their behaviors.

This most wonderful and modern of therapies teaches us that it’s not events or things that upset and disturb us, but rather how we view these events or things. In essence, how a person thinks, influences their feelings.

When a person believes illogical and irrational beliefs about themselves, others and the world, psychological problems and mental distress will often be the result.

The goal of REBT is to help people alter these negative thinking patterns and irrational, illogical beliefs, in order to overcome any resulting psychological problems.

I have created this course in such a way that everybody can benefit from this amazing therapy approach. No special knowledge of psychology or therapy is needed, as the course has been written for beginners.

An open mind and a willingness to rethink the way in which you view yourself, others and the world are all that is required for you to gain maximum benefit of the REBT Model.

REBT can be effective for a long list of disorders and issues, with a good body of evidence supporting its effectiveness for each one.

These include:

  • Depression
  • Various forms of anxiety, especially social anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Phobias
  • Panic attacks
  • Eating disorders
  • All types of addictions
  • Problems related to impulse control
  • Problems related to emotional control
  • Personality disorders
  • Anger management
  • Pain management
  • Stress management
  • Coping with health or disability problems
  • Child behavioral issues
  • Family relationship issues
  • Issues specific to couples
  • Personal growth, life goal issues, performance at work issues

As you can see, REBT is a versatile approach, helping people with a wide range of psychological and life issues.
