It’s official! “Awfulize” is now a word!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 15 Jun 19 in Anger, Awfulizing, Awfulzing, Basics, Demanding, Demanding, Emotions, Low Frustration Tolerance, must |

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 […]

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

Posted by Rex Alexander on Tue 5 Mar 19 in Awfulzing, Books & Media, bookshop |

Over at the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup 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? 3,365 total views, 1 views today Originally posted 2013-09-25 01:35:17.
