Greta Van Susteren,Fox News Analyst   We have been talking about the model of REBT where demanding (“shoulds,” et al) is at the root of disturbance.  I thought it might be a good occasion to reprise my concept of “disguised shoulds.” 2,023 total views, 4 views today Originally posted 2014-10-01 06:33:55.
