A cat has PAWS on it’s claws, but a comma has pause on it’s clause!

A reader brings up some interesting questions about depression and other problems following withdrawal from dependence on benzodiazepines (related to Valium) even seven months after discontinuing use.

Dr. Ellis speaks on accepting self and others.

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 24 Sep 17 in Acceptance, Albert Ellis, Basics |

Hi REBTmates!  Might as well hear it directly from the horse’s mouth, as it were. We are most fortunately to live in this modern age where the treasure of Dr. Ellis’s ideas is preserved for posterity.  We intend to post more of these videos in due course, perhaps create a “videos” section or library here.

Do you believe your thoughts?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Wed 20 Sep 17 in Ten Cognitive Distortions |
