Overview

Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) is a direct, brief, and solution-oriented model of therapy devised by Dr. Albert Ellis. At its fundamental core is the premise that our emotions are a result of our beliefs and not a result of the events that happen in our lives. Thus, REBT aims to identify the irrational negative beliefs that lead to unnecessary emotional distress in an individual and helps them replace them with rational and constructive ways of thinking.
REBT works by identifying the various core irrational beliefs that individuals, especially those with personality disorders, possess. These include Absolutism or Demandingness, which refers to inflexible, extreme, dogmatic beliefs often accompanied by words like should, have to, must, need to, etc. (“I should always be able to do what I want”), Demand for Comfort which implies no tolerance for any discomfort, Demand for Achievement or Success, and Demand for Approval and Love – from nearly everyone important to the person.
