Are you ready for your morning REBT safari?

Is “happiness” possible or a cruel illusion?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 17 Oct 17 in Happiness |

 Good Morning REBT Mates!

We have been discussing whether it is really possible to be “genuinely happy and what REBT has to say about happiness. A reader shares this quote from the Dalai Lama

"Achieving genuine happiness may require bringing about a transformation in  your outlook, your way of thinking, and this is not a simple matter."

– The 14th  Dalai Lama

His Holiness is being just a tad bland or casual, I think, in saying that genuine happiness is not a "simple matter."

It’s settled! Laughter is the best policy!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 17 Oct 17 in Uncategorized |

Grrrrrrr or Hahahaha ???
When something goes wrong, is it “”REBT Kosher” to intentionally laugh rather than lash out in anger?

Is keeping emotions “bottled up” dangerous?

In my callow and shallow youth, I used to subscribe to the "teapot model" of emotions.  You know, our emotional systems are like teapots with water boiling, generating steam and pressure.  If the steam does not have an outlet, or the outlet becomes overwhelmed by too much steam expanding too quickly . . . POW !!!  Explosion !!! 

But I don't think it works that way . . .

Will there always be an REBT?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 15 Oct 17 in Albert Ellis, REBT & Other therapies compared |
Related imageOn another blog, a friend was gently ribbing me about my interest in "kooky" stuff like TaiChi and biofeedback  that has little to do with REBT-CBT.

How helpful is CBT, really?

We have been discussing the approach of Dr. David Burns, renowned member of the Beck team which developed Cognitive Therapy in the 1980’s, best-selling author of the evergreen “Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy” and many other fine books on CBT.
