Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 22 Nov 19 in Depression, General Semantics, Happiness, musterbation, musty thinking, Religion |

REBT vs. ACT ???

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 17 Nov 19 in Books & Media, Happiness, Mindfulness, REBT & Other therapies compared |

  We have been discussing visualizing, specifically as it relates to “Scary Pictures” in Russ Harris’s wonderful, “Happiness Trap.” The individual says that he prefers ACT to REBT-CBT, but that he has difficulty visualizing and therefore difficulty applying  the techniques in the “Scary Pictures” section of Russ’s book. 15,168 total views, 4 views today Originally posted 2014-04-28 05:04:37.

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 2 Nov 19 in Books & Media, Happiness |

  We have been talking about ‘happiness.’  Is it real  or a cruel, false hope propagated by self-help authors trying to peddle their books and seminars? Possibly a bit of both, me thinks.

Are you “rational”?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 20 Oct 19 in Basics, Happiness, Rational living, Rational Thinking |

It takes courage to be happy in a sad world!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 13 Oct 19 in Acceptance, Depression, Happiness, Irrationality in the arts & media, suicide, ULA, UOA, USA |

   It takes courage to be happy in a sad world!  I wrote this yesterday for someone who struggles with depression.  While I reckon no one would ever accuse me of being Little Mary Sunshine, this is a message of hope, albeit expressed in an oblique way.

What is the purpose of life?

We have been having a great time with our friends over at the REBT-CBT Forum discussing the timeless question, What is the Purpose of Life?  Actually, REBT has quite a bit to say about this, but I fear that what it has to say is not very satisfying to those who raise the question!  Click the […]
