Transcript of R.E.B.T

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy assists individuals to realize unconditional SELF-acceptance as well as unconditional OTHER-acceptance. It has proven to be extremely successful to assist group members to become aware of their irrational & defeatist perceptions and to think, feel, and act more positive.
Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) is one of the cognitive-behavioural approaches to psychotherapy (Watson, 1999). This means, that it examines the roles both cognition and behaviour plays on individual’s emotional perceptions (Watson, 1999).
What is REBT
REBT focuses on reconstructing individual thought processes by helping members realize their faulty and irrational or unrealistic ways of thinking (Mackinnon, 2014). It largely places the onus upon the individual in question.

How it helps
Cognitive Techniques
The goal of our group is to enlighten members on their thinking philosophies and positively change disturbed thoughts. Within these sessions, various strategies (some of which are explained in the previous slide) will be used to overcome these disturbed thoughts. These techniques will be examined in great detail. Members will be asked for two commitments. The first commitment will be to be participate and be actively-engaged in the group sessions.
What is the goal
- gives members the opportunity to critically examine their ways of thinking in order to detect which thoughts are truly irrational, debate these irrational beliefs, and “discriminate between irrational and rational thinking (Mackinnon, 2014).”
-Much of these irrational thoughts stem from the
- “should-ofs”
- & musturbation
- “ I must always receive above 95% in classes, or else I am a failure”
- “I must never show my weaknesses”

Pros & Cons
Interview with Albert Ellis
Albert Ellis: Father of REBT
In 1956, Albert Ellis introduced his work;
it was first know as Rational Therapy.
However, in 1993 his form of therapy was renamed and is now called Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (Watson, 1999).
Pros- this group will allow for individuals
to become empowered in their thinking
-effective in daily aspects of life
Cons-leaders must be sensitive to others and stay objective and not instill their personal values onto others

Group Selection
. As REBT is short-term the group will be 6 weeks long in duration. There will be two intakes and sessions will run Saturdays from 11:00am-2:00pm and 3:00pm-6:00pm. The demographic of the groups are directed at are women between the ages of 18-25. The group will be voluntary, but will be closed and consist of no more than 10 individuals at a time.
