Disguised “Should” statments

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 20 Mar 19 in Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, ought, should statements, Why? questions |

  REBT Mates, it may have been yours truly who coined the term “disguised shoulds.” Dishonest “why” questions are one of the most obvious examples. Dishonest “whys” pretend to ask for an explanation when in fact they are really making a “should” statement. 1,284 total views, 1 views today Originally posted 2017-01-30 21:19:36.

What is the purpose of life?

We have been having a great time with our friends over at the REBT-CBT Forum discussing the timeless question, What is the Purpose of Life?  Actually, REBT has quite a bit to say about this, but I fear that what it has to say is not very satisfying to those who raise the question!  Click the […]

Self-help forms.

Willie T has been making some interesting comments about whether REBT is “talk therapy” or something else. He shares some additional information which hits on a sore spot of mine–mechanically filling out forms–and is worth exploring in greater depth.  Here’s Willie.  We’ve taken the liberty of running the SpellCheck for him.  Hehehe . . .

Read 1984, please!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 24 Jan 19 in Books & Media, bookshop, Culture, Curren Events, emotional reasoning, Emotions, History, Politics, Politics, Videos |

Yeah, yeah. We know. You read the novel 1984 in high school 40 years ago. You watched both the 1956 and 1984 major motion picture adaptations.  Been there, done that. Oh, hum Yawn.  If you are younger, maybe you see it as “old school,”  Cold War, McCarthy Era propaganda. Nothing to see here, folks, beep-beep, […]

Ten Cognitive Distortions & Four IB’s

REBT-CBT is built on the premise that we all make fundamental mistakes in the way we think about ourselves, other people and life in general, and that these mistakes (irrational beliefs and cognitive distortions) are the real cause of (virtually all) of our misery and dysfunction and failure.

Negative thinking patterns

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 1 Jan 19 in David Burns, Depression, Ten Cognitive Distortions |

  Negative thinking patterns can be immensely deceptive and persuasive, and change is rarely easy. But with patience and persistence, I believe that nearly all individuals suffering from depression can improve and experience a sense of joy and self-esteem once again.”           ~David Burns, author “Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy” […]

A reader is confused about labels and self-rating

 Rate behavior . . . not self, and you are doing good ePrime and  on the right track for doing good REBT.  This process is even more comprehensible and user-friendly if you learn something about ePrime, which is not too much of a stretch   2,540 total views, 1 views today Originally posted 2013-07-17 02:39:22.
