This text has been written for those who are consulting or thinking about consulting a rational emotive behaviour therapist. It outlines this approach to counselling and psychotherapy and equips its readers with the fundamental knowledge and skills required to get the most out of REBT. In particular, the book shows how to define problems and set goals, use REBT's famous ABC framework to assess problems, question beliefs and strengthen conviction in rational beliefs so that significant psychological change is achieved, prevented relapse and common obstacles to change identified and overcome. Passively reading this manual won't help you to achieve your therapeutic goals. Actively putting into practice its suggestions almost certainly will. Contents: Defining problems and setting goals; seven steps to enduring psychological change; the ABCs of rational emotive behaviour therapy; identifying irrational beliefs and rational beliefs; questioning your beliefs; how to believe in your gut and what you understand in your head; overcoming common obstacles to change.
