How to stubbornly refuse to make yourself miserable about anything--yes, anything! by Albert Ellis( Book )

38 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most emotional misery and psychological disturbances are unnecessary over-reactions and can be significantly reduced--that is the simple message of this book. Not only are anger, anxiety and depression unnecessary, they are unethical, for when you allow yourself to become emotionally disturbed you are being unfair and unjust--to yourself. Dr. Albert Ellis, the originator of Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET), contends that we ourselves create our own feelings and choose to think and feel in self-harming ways. The way to escape this trap we set for ourselves is by application of the principles of RET. Given the stress and strain of modern day-to-day living, the last things we need are the inhibiting, crippling problems we bring upon ourselves by the way we think and feel about the world and the people around us. The simple, logical method outlined in this book is the soundest approach yet devised to acquire true mental health and happiness. Dr. Albert Ellis is the founder of the Institute for Rational-Emotive Therapy, which now has branches throughout the United States and around the world. He is the author of more than forty-five books, including A New Guide to Rational Living (with Robert A. Harper, Ph. D.), Sex Without Guilt and Sex and the Liberated Man

The road to tolerance : the philosophy of rational emotive behavior therapy by Albert Ellis( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: In this overview of one of the most successful forms of psychotherapy-Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)-its creator and chief advocate, Albert Ellis, explains at length the principles underlying this therapeutic approach and shows how beneficial it can be, not only for therapy but also as a basic philosophy of life. As the title indicates, REBT promotes an attitude of tolerance, an open-minded willingness to accept the frailties, less-than-ideal behaviors, and unique characteristics of both others and ourselves. Ellis persuasively demonstrates that lack of tolerance of our own imperfections can easily lead to emotional disturbances and unhappiness. And intolerance of others, which fails to account for the great diversity of human personalities and behaviors, can become a serious disruptive force in today₂s highly diverse, multicultural global society. To counter such negative tendencies, Ellis advocates the adoption and practice of three basic attitudes of tolerance: (1) Unconditional Self-Acceptance (USA); (2) Unconditional Other-Acceptance (UOA); and (3) Unconditional Life-Acceptance (ULA). He discusses the philosophical foundations of these principles and then devotes a number of chapters to comparing REBT to spiritual and religious philosophies. He points out the dangers of fanatical tendencies in religion while also showing how the basic principles of REBT are similar to some ancient religious philosophies such as Zen Buddhism and the Judeo-Christian Golden Rule. In addition, he criticizes certain secular philosophies for their extremism, including Fascism and Ayn Rand's Objectivism, and he also discusses the ramifications of applying REBT in the social, political, and economic sphere. In emphasizing how easy it is for all of us to think, feel, and act intolerantly, Ellis brilliantly shows that tolerance is a deliberate, rational choice that we can all make, both for the good of ourselves and for the good of the world
Better, deeper, and more enduring brief therapy : the rational emotive behavior therapy approach by Albert Ellis( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and French and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Better, Deeper, and More Enduring Brief Therapy, Albert Ellis, founder of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, describes how REBT can help clients to significantly improve in a short period of time (10 to 20 sessions) and effect a profound philosophical-emotional-behavioral change - more often than can be achieved with other popular forms of therapy. In a comprehensive, accessible format, Dr. Ellis offers his theories, practices, verbatim sessions, and other materials that help to describe how REBT can be a valuable asset in psychotherapeutic treatment. He clearly elaborates those REBT methods best suited to helping people reduce their neurotic symptoms and achieve more fulfilling individual and social lives. He also includes alternative approaches that often prove effective, as well as common pitfalls to avoid when employing them

Rational emotive behavioral approaches to childhood disorders : theory, practice and research by Albert Ellis( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the groundbreaking first edition of Rational Emotive Approaches to the Problems of Childhood by Albert Ellis and Michael Bernard two decades ago, our understanding of the nature and treatment of children's problems has grown considerably. Now in a completely new volume, Albert Ellis and children's REBT specialist Professor Michael Bernard have revised and updated this pioneering volume to reflect both the latest in clinical practice and research. Fourteen expert contributors (including many from the original) share with the editors a deep commitment to integrating REBT with other cognitive-behavioral methods, and to providing young people with developmentally appropriate care. Together they give readers a practical framework for conducting assessment, treatment, and prevention with individuals, clients and groups as well as in family and school settings. (Midwest)
Personality theories : critical perspectives by Albert Ellis( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Personality Theories: Critical Perspectives is the groundbreaking, final text written by Albert Ellis, long considered the grandfather of cognitive behavioral therapies. The book provides students with supporting and contradictory evidence for the development of personality theories through time. Without condemning the founding theorists who came before him, Ellis builds on more than a century of psychological research to re-examine the theories of Freud, Jung, and Adler while taking an equally critical look at modern, research-based theories, including his own."--Jacket
