From the Back Cover

"

Reissued with a new foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD, ScD, St. John's University

""New trainees often get the theory of psychopathology; they struggle to get the case conceptualization and the strategic plan. Then they ask themselves. ""What do I do now?"" Going from the abstractions to the actions is not always clear.

"The Practice of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy" represents a compilation of years of theoretical and clinical insights distilled into a specific theory of disturbance and therapy and deductions for specific clinical strategies and techniques....The structure of this books focuses on an explication of the theory, a chapter on basic practice, and a chapter on an in depth case study. A detailed chapter follows on the practice of individual psychotherapy. Although the book is not broken into sections, the next four chapters represent a real treasure. The authors focus on using REBT in couples, family, group, and marathons sessions. Doing REBT with one person is difficult to learn. Once the clinician adds more people to the room with different and sometimes competing agendas things get more complicated. These chapters will not only help the novice clinician but also the experienced REBT therapists work better in these types of sessions.

So, consider yourself lucky for having picked up this book. Reading it will help many people get better."" - From the Foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD, ScD, Director of Professional Education, Albert Ellis Institute; Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, St. John's University

This edition, involving a unique collaboration between Albert Ellis and the world's greatest Ellis scholar, Windy Dryden, modernizes Ellis's pioneering theories. The book begins with an explanation of rational emotive behavior therapy as a general treatment model and then addresses different treatment modalities, including individual, couple, family, and sex therapy. The authors have added material new since the book's original edition on teaching the principles of unconditional self-acceptance in a structured group setting. With extensive use of actual case examples to illustrate each of the different settings, and a new brand new foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe that sets the book into its 21st-century context. "

Format: Paperback
"The Practice of Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy" is one of the best responses I can think of for those moments when nothing goes right and self-hatred grows in proportion. Albert Ellis was a remarkable character, apart from his evident expertise as psycho-therapist and critic of anything short of total release from mental pain and anguish. Perhaps he does go to far when he insists on life as hedonism; only someone from a wealthy society can insist on that. But still his wise application of the Stoics, and Epictetus the Greek slave in particular, are good reminders of the old Jewish (I think) adage that God gave us a brain that we should use. Yea, to that!

Read it and come across Ellis's excoriation of self-pity, self-loathing, and self-recrimination - and learn what he means by "must-erbation" and "should-ism".

HASH(0x968c1dc8) out of 5 stars Just what I needed 27 Feb. 2009
By P. M. Youn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I read this (from the book): "The essence of human emotional disturbance consists of the absolutistic "must's" and "must not's" that people think about their failure, about their rejections, about their poor treatment by others, and about life's frustrations and losses. To avoid emotional disturbance, they can be surrendered if they give up their absolutistic demands on themselves, other people and the universe. And at the same time, have strong and persistent desires, wishes, and preferences, and to avoid feelings of detachment, withdrawal, and lack of involvement." I was shocked. This is just what I needed to finally understand why I felt so much anger and got anxious after wood when "other people" acted so irrationally, not to say stupidly. I understood it right that moment: they're not the problem, it's me.

HASH(0x971f1030) out of 5 stars Practice of Rational Emotive Therapy 19 Aug. 2010
By H. Feliciano Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent summary and review of one of the most valuable cognitive type therapies in use today. It is very valuable for family practitioners and psychiatrists in office practice. It is written in a simple matter of fact way. Very practical and I think in family practice you can use it with almost all patients with situational depresion, anxiety, unresolved grief and marital therapy Thanks- Hector A. Feliciano M.D.- Proffesor of Family Medicine

Great book for learning how to deliver REBT in a therapy session. Gives a clear picture of the theoretical orientation and how to deliver to clients. There are some small typos but it is a great book.

REBT is very well defined in this book. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in Counseling and a cutting edge therapy that actually works. Dr Albert Ellis is straight out with recommendations to patients and Therapists alike.

HASH(0x971f1348) out of 5 stars The right stuff 3 July 2012
By Otter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i am in an MFT program and have chosen REBT as my core approach. i find this book MUCH better in terms of explaining the philosophy and application of REBT than text books. if you want a thorough presentation of REBT, this is the way to go.
