- Our customers have not yet submitted a review for this title - click here to be the first to write a review
Rational emotive behaviour therapy (REBT) is an approach to counselling and psychotherapy rooted in the CBT tradition and one that has a distinctive perspective on emotional problems. "Understanding Emotional Problems" provides an accurate understanding of the REBT perspective on eight major emotional problems for which help is sought: anxiety; depression; shame; guilt; unhealthy; anger; hurt; unhealthy; jealousy; and, unhealthy envy. Rather than discussing treatment methods, Windy Dryden encourages the reader to accurately understand these problems and suggests that a clear, correct understanding of each disorder will provide a firm foundation for effective treatment. This concise, straightforward text presents each emotional problem in a similar way, allowing the reader to compare and contrast the similarities and differences between problems. "Understanding Emotional Problems" will be essential reading for therapists both in training and in practice.
