Rebt

For my Theoretical Orientation paper I chose to discuss Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy.   Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy was founded by Albert Ellis, PhD, in 1955. A very early form of cognitive behavior therapy Dr. Albert Ellis presented it as an action styled approach to managing cognitive, behavioral, and emotional disturbances. The core of REBT says that it is how someone thinks about an event that leads to their emotional and behavioral problems. REBT teaches these individuals how to examine and challenge their unhealthy thinking process from a present minded point of view.   which in turn creates unhealthy emotions and self-defeating/self-sabotaging behaviors.
REBT is a practical approach to assist individuals in coping with and overcoming adversity as well as achieving goals. REBT places a good deal of its focus on the present. REBT addresses attitudes, unhealthy emotions (e.g., unhealthy anger, depression, anxiety, guilt, etc.) and maladaptive behaviors (e.g., procrastination, addictive behaviors, aggression, unhealthy eating, sleep disturbance, etc.) that can negatively impact life satisfaction. REBT practitioners work closely with individuals, seeking to help identify their individual set of beliefs (attitudes, expectations and personal rules) that frequently lead to emotional distress.
REBT then provides a variety of methods to help people reformulate their dysfunctional beliefs into more sensible, realistic and helpful ones by employing the powerful REBT technique called “disputing.” Ultimately, REBT helps individuals to develop a philosophy and approach to living that can increase their effectiveness and satisfaction at work, in living successfully with others, in parenting and educational settings, in making our community and environment healthier, and in enhancing their own emotional health and personal welfare.
