A practical guide to the application of the rational emotive behaviour approach at each stage of the therapeutic process. It focuses on skills which arise out of rational emotive behaviour theory as well as those invoked by the therapeutic relationship. Accessibly written by the authority in this field, Windy Dryden uses his 30 years of experience in REBT training to draw on skills that trainees and those seeking to incorporate REBT into their existing practice find particularly difficult. He discusses: theoretical and practical features of REBT and the importance of the therapeutic alliance; the skills involved in the active-directive approach; specific examples of clients' problems; helping clients to identify and deal with core irrational beliefs; homework negotiation; common reasons for and skills in responding to client lack of progress. For all those training in REBT or who wish to sharpen their skills as practitioners, this is essential reading.
