A Primer on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, 3rd Edition
by Windy Dryden, Ph.D., Raymond DiGiuseppe, Ph.D., and Michael Neenan, Ph.D.
This new edition provides a concise but systematic guide to the basics of REBT--a valuable approach for helping clients overcome emotional and behavioral difficulties. The authors have updated this practical resource to reflect recent developments in REBT theory and practice. Part I briefly outlines the principles considered central to an understanding of REBT. Part II details a sequence of twenty REBT steps recommended for use during peer counseling and clinical work. Part III illustrates the application of the REBT process to a specific case. The brief overview of REBT practice presented in this primer is designed to complement rather than replace comprehensive texts for conducting REBT at a more advanced level.
