OVERGENERALIZATION: You see a single negative event as a never-ending pattern of defeat. You arbitrarily conclude that one thing that happened to you once will occur over and over again. For example, if you get passed over for promotion on the job, you might erroneously conclude: "I'll never get the promotion!"

Good evening All,
It occurs to me that reviews of websites fit nicely into this category of book and media reviews. I just became aware of Jim Byrne's ABC-Counseling,

Dr Jim Byrne, was originally very influenced by the thinking and theories of Dr Albert Ellis, sets out to explore the childhood of Albert Ellis, to see how this skewed the development of Ellis's notion of rationality, and his resistance to the idea of human emotional needs.which
which we present and discuss in a post elsewhere on this blog, which you can read here
After that long-winded introduction let me say that
