Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) in Arizona
Hope Begins Here At Decision Point Center
Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, or REBT is the original form of cognitive behavior therapy developed by Dr. Albert Ellis in 1955. REBT is constructed on the idea that how we feel is greatly persuaded by how we think. This form of therapy encourages the development of rational thinking to facilitate healthy emotional exposition and behavior.
According to albertellis.org, the effort behind REBT is addressing 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 affect life fulfillment.
The theory behind this practice is employing the ABC Model:
A – Activating Event: Identify an event that happened which triggers negative emotional or behavioral response.
B – Beliefs: Uncovering the belief about the event that happened.
C – Consequence: Finding he emotional response to the belief.
