Meet Our Team Of Depression Psychiatrists

Overview

REBT was developed by the psychologist Dr. Albert Ellis, and it is based on Epictetus’ philosophy that it is not the events themselves that cause us distress, but the thoughts and beliefs about them that lead to negative emotions. According to Dr. Ellis, upset feelings stem from basically “three musts”, which includes the demands from oneself (“I must have others’ approval”), others (“They must treat me with kindness, fairness, and respect always”), or the world (“They must do it the way I want or they deserve to be punished”). Moreover, in REBT, the therapist helps the client develop unconditional acceptance of self, others, and the world at large.

REBT helps not only to shift your brain from a depressed to a normal state; it along with other cognitive approaches such as CBT can help you feel better as well. Brain scans have shown REBT to be effective in normalizing brainwave patterns and preventing relapses of depression. It can help with other disorders as well that accompany depressive thinking such as frustration, panic, anger, and anxiety.

What are the benefits of REBT for Depression?

REBT helps reduce the symptoms of depression in various ways –

  • Fosters more unconditional self-acceptance,
  • Helps change unrealistic expectations of self and others,
  • Helps rewire your brain to think less rigid thoughts, and thus experience more positive emotions.

REBT is considered a short term therapy treatment. However, the number of sessions required differs from individual to individual. In more severe cases of depression, psychiatric medications along with therapy may be prescribed.
