REBT vs. ACT ???

Posted by Rex Alexander on Mon 11 Apr 22 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.  16,906 total views Originally posted 2014-04-28 05:04:37.

It takes courage to be happy in a sad world!

Posted by Rex Alexander on Fri 25 Mar 22 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. Please share your thoughts and feelings.  12,863 total views […]

“Happy For Life” new Will Ross book

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sun 19 Sep 21 in Basics, Books & Media, Uncategorized |

One of my favorite REBT guys, the late Will Ross has talent for simplifying complex REBT concepts in a way that everyone can understand. I really envy that talent. Will’s little book,Happy for Life: Ten Key Strategies is a fine example of what I am describing.    3,321 total views,  1 views today Originally posted 2014-06-05 18:48:43.

Happiness, is it real or is it Memorex?

Posted by Rex Alexander on Sat 19 Jun 21 in Books & Media, Happiness |
