Books by Albert Ellis:
First developed in 1955, Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) is the original form of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and one of the most successful psychotherapeutic techniques in the world. Its founder, world-renowned psychologist Albert Ellis, now offers an up-to-date description of the main principles and practices of this innovative and influential therapy. This fascinating look at REBT by its internationally recognised creator will be of inestimable value to professionals and laypersons alike.
Personality Theories: A Critical Perspective is written for the advanced undergraduate or graduate student in counseling, clinical psychology, and social work. It thoroughly explicates all major personality perspectives in the light of recent research. This is one of the few textbooks that fully covers developments in evolutionary, genetic, and biological psychology as they relate to human personality.
The Practice of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy represents a compilation of years of theoretical and clinical insights distilled into a specific theory of disturbance and therapy and deductions for specific clinical strategies and techniques....The structure of this books focuses on an explication of the theory, a chapter on basic practice, and a chapter on an in depth case study. A detailed chapter follows on the practice of individual psychotherapy. Although the book is not broken into sections, the next four chapters represent a real treasure. The authors focus on using REBT in couples, family, group, and marathons sessions. Doing REBT with one person is difficult to learn. Once the clinician adds more people to the room with different and sometimes competing agendas things get more complicated. These chapters will not only help the novice clinician but also the experienced REBT therapists work better in these types of sessions.
