Vote to get Guide to Rational Living on Kindle!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 4 Dec 18 in Albert Ellis, Announcements, Books & Media, bookshop |

I am surprised that A Guide to Rational living, the classic, basic text of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) by its founder Albert Ellis is still not available in a digital edition.  This is very unfortunate.  If, like me, you are an Albert Ellis/REBT booster, you would like to see millions more people having this important […]

The language of REBT can sometimes sound a little contorted, especially when employing “ePrime,” in it’s preference for  using more verbs and adverbs than nouns and adjectives.  Now, it is official! “Awfulizing” has made it to the big time and is […]

Is REBT-CBT “Positive Thinking”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 21 Sep 18 in Postive thinkikng, REBT & Other therapies compared |

 Hi REBT Mates!  Erroneous comparisons of REBT-CBT to "positive thinking" and similar is a pereneal staw man argument . One of the problems in trying to get the word out  about REBT-CBT is that they are often dismissed  as merely “positive thinking. In my opinion, one of the goals of any REBT media is to distinguish REBT-CBT from […]
