How do we manage “job burnout”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 20 Apr 18 in Demanding, Demanding, Depression, job burn out, Low Frustration Tolerance, Perfectionism |

A reader asks about managing job burnout

What a great topic!

There is an expectation that has become common since the 1960’s that work is “supposed” to be fulfilling, satisfying, fun, even meaningful . . .

Nothing is ever 100% Awful (Are you sure?)

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 20 Apr 18 in Awfulzing |

Over at the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup , http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/REBT-CBT-FORUM/info  ,  we have been having a fascinating-if-perennial discussion about whether anything is truly awful . . . And, if it is true, as REBT asserts that nothing is ever truly 100% awful, how can we convince clients of that?

What is the difference between healthy & unhealthy emoting?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 19 Apr 18 in Demanding, Emotions |

“When adversities happen to people, they can choose to make themselves either (1) healthfully negative, sorry and regretful and annoyed and frustrated and disappointed about the happening  or (2) unhealthfully negative  creating feelings of horror, terror, anxiety, depression, rage, and other disturbed feelings, along with dysfunctional behaviors. And even if they create these dysfunctional feelings and behaviors, they ‘re able  because we humans are born constructivists . . .”

    ~Albert Ellis  “Ask Dr. Ellis”

Three musts which hold us back

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 19 Apr 18 in Albert Ellis, Demanding, Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, should statements |

 

HOMEWORK

OK, we know that REBT emphasizes various types of demands, including but not limited to, shoulds, oughts and musts, as well as a number of what I refer to as  disguised shoulds typically insincere  “Why?” questions.

We miss Robin Williams

On 11 August 2014, we were all saddened and shocked to learn of the suicide of  the national treasure, Robin Williams, particulary I think members of my generation. Robin was a year younger than me, and could have continued to make people laugh for perhaps another 20 years or more.

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 15 Apr 18 in morality, Rational living, Rational Thinking |

 

Good Morning All,

We have been having a fascinating discussion at the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup  
about REBT and values.   A member points out that everyone has a collection of values; things and qualities which are important to them., and asks what REBT says about values and [more interesting] how do we know whether our values are right or wrong?


What a great question!
 
Unfortunately, I cannot deal with this one without coffee, and I have a busy morning, but I do hope this will stimulate a lot of comments and discussion because there a a lot of fascinating and important  “beef” here, much more than I can address now.
 
However, a short answer is:
