Counseling and psychotherapy with religious persons : a rational emotive behavior therapy approach by Stevan Lars Nielsen( )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Practitioners are increasingly aware that religious persons present unique problems and challenges in therapy. Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is among the most widely practiced, highly structured and active directive approaches to treating emotional and behavioral problems. Introduced by Albert Ellis in the early 1950s, REBT is the original cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy and its efficacy has been supported by hundreds of treatment outcome studies. A uniquely belief-focused therapy, REBT is usually quite appealing to clients from Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and other religious traditions, who respond favorably to REBT's focus on right belief, active engagement in the work of therapy, and reading/practice focused homework. In this practical and user-friendly guide, the authors outline the congruence between the therapeutic approach of REBT and the presenting problems and concerns of religious persons. They describe an approach to reconciling the sacred traditions and beliefs of religious clients with the no nonsense techniques of REBT. They review the essential components of practice with religious clients--including assessment, diagnosis and problem formulation, disputation of irrational beliefs, and other REBT techniques, highlight the primary obstacles facing the therapist when treating religious clients, and offer many case examples from work with this important client population. Mental health professionals from all backgrounds will benefit from the detailed yet manual-focused approach to helping religious clients overcome all forms of emotional distress
Personality theories : critical perspectives by Albert Ellis( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,508 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

Reason and emotion in psychotherapy by Albert Ellis( Book )

66 editions published between 1962 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy, a seminal work in twentieth-century psychology, was the first book on rational-emotive therapy. Written for psychotherapists, it soon became one of the most important and most quoted books in the field. Although intended for professionals, it has since become a widely popular and indispensable self-help book. This updated and revised edition reflects new findings by Dr. Albert Ellis and his colleagues, Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy started the cognitive-behavior movement in psychotherapy. When Dr. Ellis began practicing this groundbreaking new therapy in 1955, his was a little-heard voice. Two main forms of psychotherapy, both passive, then dominated the field: Freudian psychoanalysis, with its interminable listening to troubled people's complaints and supposedly unraveling their unconscious "complexes" and purportedly healing them of childhood traumas; and Carl Rogers's client-centered therapy, which forbade therapists from using any active-directive techniques to show clients what really troubled them or what to do about it. Other forms of therapy, such as Adlerian, Gestalt, Jungian, and behavior therapy, existed but had few followers. Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy helped change all this. Including Dr. Ellis's major papers, it was the pioneering work in cognitive-behavior therapy and presented a revolutionary, powerful, brief, and effective psychological treatment that was deeper and more intensive than either psychoanalysis or the therapy of Rogers and his followers. Dr. Ellis's new approach caught the imagination of practitioners all over the world, and by the late 1960s he was joined by Aaron Beck, William Glasser, Donald Meichenbaum, and a host of other therapists who primarily followed his theories and practices. By the 1970s, Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and cognitive-behavior therapy were supported by scores of experimental studies and were being used by innumerable mental health practitioners. Today, REBT continues to be increasingly popular and effective. Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy helped so many therapists and laypeople over the years that a new edition might have seemed unnecessary. But psychotherapy, including REBT, moves on, and Dr. Ellis has expanded his original theory and practice and has added a large number of cognitive, emotive, and behavioral techniques to its innovative multimodal approach. This revised edition therefore includes all the important original theories and practices, as well as significant number of corrections and changes derived from clinical experience and experimentation, featuring a revision of its famous ABC's on human neurosis. A great many of the therapeutic techniques have been perfected since 1955, and the teachings of unconditional self-acceptance (USA) have been updated
