about

This book gives a concise theoretical exposition on the role that attitudes play in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT).

Professor Windy Dryden – one of the most distinguished experts in this field – discusses the component structure and characteristic features of what were formerly known as irrational beliefs and rational beliefs in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) but which he now calls rigid and extreme attitudes and flexible and non-extreme attitudes respectively.

The REBT model holds that rigid and extreme attitudes are at the core of emotional problems and flexible and non-extreme attitudes are at the core of the solution to these problems. Professor Dryden concludes by considering the adversity-related consequences of holding both sets of attitudes.

Attitudes in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy will help both REBT and non-REBT therapists to be clear about some of the important distinctive theoretical features of this pioneering approach within the cognitive-behavioural tradition of the psychological therapies.
