Book Description

New Directions in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy brings together leading figures from the world of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, both as a testament to the work of Albert Ellis and a reminder of the vibrancy and vigour of the approach.

The chapters in this book, taken together, show that REBT therapists are open to broader developments in the fields of counselling and psychotherapy in general and can also contribute to these developments. The book introduces REBT to readers who are more familiar with CBT and locates REBT within the broader fields of CBT and modern psychotherapy.

The book will interest REBT and CBT therapists and more broadly it will interest those in the helping professions wishing to explore what REBT can currently offer them and how this approach can be practiced.
