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?

“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.

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.

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.
