  • The ABCs of REBT Revisited

    Windy Dryden

    • Springer
    • 9 Novembre 2012

    ???
    ?The cornerstone of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy is
    its ABC framework which helps therapists make sense of clients' problems. As it turns out, however, this model is often misunderstood by both clients and professionals. Research investigation on this misunderstanding forms the basis of this book. It addresses the doubts, reservations and objections clients had to the ABC framework in a research study of an REBT-based program in a psychiatric hospital. Additionally, errors and confusions on the part of those writing about the therapy is reviewed. Further, study was made on the accuracy of REBT
    therapists, themselves, in teaching this therapy to students. Also included is an analysis of how Albert Ellis, himself, has explicated the ABC's. This book is the first to systematically study how different groups conceptualise the ABCs of REBT and the errors that are commonly made in interpreting and putting them into practice. It will be of value to students and practitioners of REBT, and those teaching REBT in academic settings.

    Many counselling and psychotherapy researchers are suspicious of the pronouncements of practitioners because they are not backed up by research. Similarly, practitioners tend to ignore research findings because they consider that they have little relevance to their clinical practice.

    This book bridges the gap that currently exists between research and practice in counselling and psychotherapy by providing detailed clinical examples of the practical relevance of research. It brings together contributions from leading British and American psychotherapy researchers, who describe their research programmes and explore how their findings can substantially inform therapeutic practice. The book calls for the close integration of research, skills training and supervised clinical practice on training courses.

    This comprehensive and accessible book charts the origins and development of the major non-psychoanalytic fields in counselling and psychotherapy.

    Leading British and North American psychotherapists examine a range of approaches including person-centred, transactional analysis, Gestalt, cognitive and behavioural therapy. They discuss how, why and where each approach came about, and the context and influences under which it was formulated. They go on to survey the further development of theory and practice in each case, taking in the most significant trends and highlighting advances which are often not recognized or fully understood. Each approach is then brought firmly up to date with an overview of its current ideology and direction, so that readers can relate its present-day context to its historical background.

    `This is a very honest book and should be essential reading for anyone beginning training as a counsellor. It will also be useful for experienced therapists to stimulate reflections on their own practice... to examine their work and to learn from errors. It is refreshing to witness the honesty and openness of the writers - especially so in the present culture, where many therapists set themselves up as flawless experts... I would recommend this book... it provides an informed and open discussion on the problems encountered by therapists' - Clinical Psychology Forum

    Counsellors often struggle in their work with clients, convinced that their more experienced colleagues have not encountered similar problems and worries. In this volume, some of Britain's leading counsellors give the lie to this myth. Writing openly and frankly, they share the painful lessons they have learned over the course of their careers as practitioners.

    The contributors' combined experience proves that all counsellors, no matter how expert or well-known, have made mistakes, or faced challenges, and from them have had to learn aspects about the process of counselling - the hard way. The five `lessons' from each contributor are placed in the context of the counsellor's own particular circumstances, and a concluding section in each chapter links the connecting themes that emerged throughout their learning process.

    This authoritative volume commemorates six decades of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy by assembling its current state of theory, practice, and research. Bedrock chapters on defining features, assessment and measurement, and empirical findings place REBT squarely in the cognitive-behavioral landscape, reinforcing its status as a significant therapeutic approach. The book's palette of applications shows the flexibility and effectiveness of REBT in school, workplace, and other settings, with worried parents and "stuck" athletes, and as a foundation for brief interventions. And the survey of guiding principles and the evolution of the method by REBT founder Albert Ellis is a testament to its enduring clinical value.

     

    Included in the coverage:

     

    ·         A comparison of REBT with other cognitive behavior therapies.

    ·         The measurement of irrationality and rationality.

    ·         Empirical Research in REBT theory and practice.

    ·         Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and the working alliance.

    ·         Brief interventions in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy.

    ·         REBT and positive psychology. 

    ·         Rational emotive behavior education in schools.                                         

     

    Advances in REBT will be welcomed as a definitive reference across the REBT community: frontline clinicians, novices, trainees, students, and researchers. Seasoned practitioners looking to incorporate REBT into their repertoires will find it immensely helpful.

  • A complete introduction to REBT, an approach to CBT which argues that at the core of emotional disturbance lies a set of irrational beliefs that people hold about themselves and others Essential for counsellors who are beginning to use REBT with clients - recreates the 'feel'of a training course and alerts trainees to difficulties they may experience when using REBT in practice Covers all the basic theoretical and practical information that trainees need to begin using REBT, with special attention paid to disputing irrational beliefs and helping clients set goals Windy Dryden is the world's best-known and most prolific name in REBT after its founder (the late Albert Ellis), and there is no direct competition to this unique handbook

  • Overcome anxiety and learn how to live a happier, calmer life with these simple and easy to master techniques.

  • By changing and challenging your negative thoughts, you can free yourself from depression, anxiety and guilt, and embrace a happier, healthier way of life. Windy Dryden, one of the UK's leading practitioners of Behavioural Therapy, will show you how the techniques of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy can not only beat the thought patterns that lead to low mood and emotional distress but will also help you to develop a more balanced way of life and give you a resilient, focused attitude towards overcoming obstacles and coping with daily challenges.

  • The books in this bite-sized new series contain no complicated techniques or tricky materials, making them ideal for the busy, the time-pressured or the merely curious. CBT Tips for a Happier Life is a short, simple and to-the-point guide to learning some basic Cognitive Behavioural Therapy skills that will help to boost your self-esteem, prevent negative thinking, and overcome self-defeating behaviour that might stop you reaching your goals. In just 128 pages you will discover a complete toolkit for making positive and lasting changes to your way of thinking and acting.

  • This practice-focused resource demonstrates effective uses of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy methods and techniques in treating clients across various conditions, settings, and subgroups.

    Client problems featured include both those often associated with REBT (e.g., anxiety, depression, anger) and others noted for complex presentations, difficulties with engagement, and impasses (e.g., addictions, suicidality, psychosis). Challenging treatment populations are covered as well, including women, couples, families, elder and pediatric clients, clients with disabilities, and sexual minorities. These stimulating cases show how well the diversity of clients and their concerns is matched by the flexibility of techniques and applications within REBT.

    In each chapter, expert therapists:

    ·         Identify concepts in REBT especially suited to approaching the problem or population.

    ·         Outline best REBT practices in assessment and treatment of the client(s).

    ·         Survey evidence-based non-REBT approaches most useful in complementing REBT.

    ·         Provide a brief case example representing appropriate REBT in action.

    ·         Assess their use of REBT in treating the problem or members of the population.

    A bedrock text for REBT scholar-practitioners, REBT with Diverse Populations and Problems is a testimony to the continuing usefulness of the therapy and its adaptability as client populations emerge and as the contexts of client problems evolve in response to a demanding world.

    `How hard it is to find a book to recommend to trainees, which will give them an insight into what counselling (and psychotherapy too, for that matter) is really like. This book does exactly that.... This is a book which would be equally useful to the humanistic practitioner and the more orthodox one. The breadth of sympathy is admirable in dealing with what is common to all orientations. This is one of those rare books which does justice both to the human experiences involved in counselling and psychotherapy, and to the theory which might explain those experiences' - Changes



    What is the experience of counselling from the perspectives of both client and counsellor? What can be learned for the practice of counselling from an understanding of how it feels to be a client or a counsellor? Addressing these questions, central to this book are the personal accounts of individual clients and counsellors, who each relate their own very different experiences of counselling. They explore such issues as identity, expectations, trust, power and boundaries in the client-counsellor relationship. And each examines the intense personal meanings of `success' or `failure' in the client or counsellor role. An analysis of the implications for the counselling relationship concludes the volume.

    `A welcome addition to the series. The co-authors... have endeavoured to give a thorough and practical guide to this vast subject and they have managed to do this within the confines of an easy-to-read, cheap and relatively short paperback... a very useful practical volume for the general counsellor to have on their book shelf' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

    This comprehensive guide views stress counselling and management from a multimodal perspective. Clear guidelines show practitioners how they can give their clients the most effective help for their stress problems using a technically eclectic and systematic approach.

    The authors discuss the symptoms and causes of stress and outline a framework in which stress problems can be understood. They emphasize the importance of assessment as a guide to the selection of multimodal interventions and of tailoring the counselling approach for each client. Chapters discuss the range of interventions that can be used - cognitive, imagery, behavioural, sensory, interpersonal and health/lifestyle - and the most useful techniques that can be employed within these models, such as disputing irrational beliefs, coping imagery, psychodrama, relaxation training and assertion training. Case examples illustrate commonly used techniques.

    `An excellent compilation..... Given the explosion in the demand for both counselling and supervision, this book should be required reading for all those putting a toe in these complex waters. However, I think it is also a salutary guide for those already practising as trainers and supervisors. I found the issues raised stimulated me to think again about my own practice and to profit from that exercise' - Counselling, The Journal of The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

    This accessible book explores the issues involved in both the training and supervision of counsellors and in the preparation of those who are to undertake supervisory and training roles. The number of training courses is growing and counsellors must undergo supervision if they are to be accredited by professional bodies. In this volume, leading trainers and supervisors from different counselling traditions discuss the responsibilities and the professional and practical issues involved, and a trainee and supervisee give an insider's view of what it feels like to be in these positions. The closing chapter deals with the important issue of training for counsellor trainers and supervisors.

    `The book is highly readable and makes extensive use of an actual case study in order to illustrate the approach' - Mark Edwards, Nurtuting Potential

    `As the creator of Rational Emotive Therapy I have probably read more books dealing with its theory and practice than has anyone else. Of all these books, Windy Dryden and Michael Neenan's is easily one of the best. In a remarkably concise way they have distilled most of the main principles and methods into a small, highly practical and exceptionally readable volume. Any counsellor or therapist will find this book unusually useful and valuable' - Albert Ellis, Albert Ellis Institute

    Rational Emotive Behavioural Counselling in Action, Third Edition is a brand new edition of this highly popular guide to a much used approach. Combining the theoretical with the practical, the book provides an accessible guide for newcomers to this form of counselling.

    The book describes the way in which the REB approach helps clients to identify the self-defeating beliefs behind their problems and instead to think, feel and behave differently as a means of achieving valued goals. Fully revised and updated, the book includes an important client case study following therapeutic work with `Paula', which introduces the reader to the strategies and techniques needed at every stage of the process. Here, the reader is given an insight into the nuts and bolts of the therapeutic session, including conversations between client and therapist to illustrate the counselling sequence, how to help the client achieve goals, and how to end the counselling process.

    Rational Emotive Behavioural Counselling in Action, Third Edition is invaluable for trainees of REB counselling, as well as those who want to incorporate elements of the approach into their own therapeutic work.

    `A remarkably useful book for the practitioners of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy and other kinds of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Very clearly and intensively covers what effective therapeutic change is and the therapist's and the client's role in following it and in fighting against relapsing. Dryden's and Neenan's book includes many important points that are often omitted from REBT and other therapies. Definitive and thoroughgoing!' - Albert Ellis, President of Albert Ellis Institute

    Albert Ellis Live! is a collection of five transcripts of therapy sessions conducted by Albert Ellis, the founding father of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). With commentary by Windy Dryden, bestselling author and expert on REBT, Albert Ellis Live! provides a unique opportunity to `listen in' on a master therapist carrying out the therapy which he originated.

    Each of the five transcripts presents a counselling session conducted by Ellis himself with a volunteer client. Each transcript is accompanied by a commentary, in which Windy Dryden explains what Ellis is doing and why.

    Published in celebration of Ellis' 90th birthday, Albert Ellis Live! will be invaluable to students and practitioners of this approach, offering them a unique insight into the theory and practice of REBT.

    `The REBT Approach to Therapeutic Change is again an excellent introduction for trainee and practising counsellors, or anyone interested in the subject. The outline of the approach is very clear and is helped by examples in chart form' - Mark Edwards, Nurtuting Potential

    `A remarkably useful book for the practitioners of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy and other kinds of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy!... Definitive and thorough going'- Albert Ellis

    `Change' is at the heart of counselling and psychotherapy. Clients enter into the therapeutic process in the hope that something in themselves or their situation will be different by the end. Counsellors and Psychotherapists therefore need to understand the nature of change and how best to facilitate it. This is the subject of The Rational Emotive Behavioural Approach to Therapeutic Change.

    Central to the REBT approach is the view that many of the problems people experience in life are largely determinded by irrational beliefs they hold about themselves, other people and the world. The therapist's role is therefore to help clients identify, challenge and change these unhelpful beliefs. The book describes the cognitive, emotional and behavioural techniques which clients can use to promote psychological change in themselves. It also discusses obstacles to change, which may arise at different points in the therapeutic process and provides strategies for tackling them.

    Despite its centrality within counselling and psychotherapy, surprisingly little has been written on the subject of change and in a way that is accessible for trainees and practitioners. The Rational Emotive Behavioural Approach to Therapeutic Change will be welcomed both by those specializing in REBT and those trained in other approaches wanting to learn more about the change process in counselling and psychotherapy.

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Effective counselling is based on a strong working relationship between counsellor and client. Building and maintaining this therapeutic alliance, demands both skill and an ability to negotiate challenges which arise during the counselling process.

    Key Issues for Counselling in Action prepares new practitioners for face-to-face work with clients by looking at what is required at each stage of the process and examining issues which practitioners most frequently need to deal with along the way. The topics covered are relevant to all counsellors, regardless of theoretical orientation.

    The book explores the everyday issues counsellors face when:
    - getting started
    - making an assessment
    - working at relational depth
    - setting goals, and
    - ending the relationship

    Advice is also given on more difficult challenges, such as dealing with:
    - reluctant clients
    - stuckness
    - client dependency, and
    - unplanned endings.

    Key Issues for Counselling in Action is a bestselling text which has been used to train many thousands of counsellors as well as supporting their continuing professional development. This second edition has been completely re-written and includes new material on the use of touch, self-care, culture and counselling evaluation.

    Windy Dryden is Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies, Professional and Community Education (PACE) at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

    `It is a fairly well established clich[ac]e that while supervision is recognised as a crucial component of good practice in psychotherapy and counselling, there is correspondingly little written about it... [this book is] a good step in redressing the balance... It is a practical, didactic and generic view of how to do supervision... giving a fairly comprehensive account of 30 of the formal skills that all supervisors probably use whether consciously or not... The book discusses each of the skills, giving examples as well as practical suggestions as to how to approach difficult issues... directed principally at counsellors, it is a book to dip into when faced with a panic about a specific issue' - Therapeutic Communities

    Supervision is a professional and ethical necessity for all counsellors, providing them with consultative and supportive aid while protecting clients from potential abuse - yet relatively little has been written on the subject. This volume aims to redress that balance.

    Encouraging, yet sensitive to the difficult issues that frequently arise in supervision, the book contains practical suggestions, plus useful appendices, to help practising and trainee supervisors develop and enhance the skills they need to be successful in their work. The authors cover such key areas as creating a supervisory alliance, fostering the supervisory relationship, the use of tape-recording, highlighting supervisees' strengths and weaknesses, and protecting the client and counsellor.
