|Albert Ellis: A Guide to Rational Living – Thinking Allowed DVD with Jeffrey Mishlove
NOTE: This is an excerpt from the full 90-minute DVD (available on Amazon.com)
Working to change your personal philosophy is a valid therapeutic technique — one which can lead to genuine growth. Behavior, emotion and cognition, says Albert Ellis, are all interrelated. He tells us how to recognize irrational belief patterns based on “musts” and “shoulds.” He then presents methods for self-analysis and therapy. Dr. Ellis discusses and demonstrates the modeling approach, the use of humor, the use of cognitive homework, unconditional acceptance of clients, the use of strong language and dealing with low frustration tolerance. In a moving manner, he also describes the application of these principles in his own life experience. (A DVD program in two parts) Born in 1913, Albert Ellis, Ph.D., was one of the most influential figures in the history of psychology. He is author of over 600 academic papers and more than 50 books including A Guide to Rational Living, How to Live with a Neurotic, Humanistic Psychotherapy, The Art and Science of Love and Sex Without Guilt. Dr. Ellis is considered the grandfather of cognitive behavior therapy, the founder of Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) and one of the architects of the sexual revolution.
