Three musts which hold us back

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 19 Apr 18 in Albert Ellis, Demanding, Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, should statements |

  HOMEWORK OK, we know that REBT emphasizes various types of demands, including but not limited to, shoulds, oughts and musts, as well as a number of what I refer to as  disguised shoulds typically insincere  “Why?” questions. 530 total views, 0 views today Originally posted 2017-06-03 04:17:41.

Do anti-depressant medications work?

We have been having a fascinating discussion that I reckon is best framed as “Do anti-depressant medications work?”  It would be witless to try to have a credible discussion here about the science.  But we don’t need to delve too deeply into the science when the semantics of the question is so much more compelling and […]

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 […]

A reader is confused about labels and self-rating

 Rate behavior . . . not self, and you are doing good ePrime and  on the right track for doing good REBT.  This process is even more comprehensible and user-friendly if you learn something about ePrime, which is not too much of a stretch   2,074 total views, 0 views today Originally posted 2013-07-17 02:39:22.

Disguised “Should” statments

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 11 Mar 18 in Disguised shoulds, musterbation, musty thinking, ought, should statements, Why? questions |

Dishonest “whys” pretend to ask for an explanation when in fact they are really making a “should” statement. 657 total views, 0 views today Originally posted 2017-01-30 21:19:36.

Armageddon

Posted by Rex Alexander on Thu 1 Mar 18 in Acceptance, Awfulzing, disqualifying the positive, Rational living |

My friend Jimmy from the REBT-CBT Yahoogroup is feeling gloomy about current events, and seeing some of the really nasty things going on in the news as heralding the breakdown of modern society.  He is hardly the first to make that observation.  Here is what I said. 6,990 total views, 0 views today Originally posted 2015-07-30 07:37:31.
