Albert Ellis' Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)- Daniel Man of Reason

Of course life doesn't always allow us to have what we want; our goal of being happy is often thwarted by the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. To illustrate this, Dr. Ellis developed a simple ABC format to teach people how their beliefs cause their emotional and behavioral responses: A. Something happens. You have a belief about the situation. You have an emotional reaction to the belief. For example: A.

Your employer falsely accuses you of taking money from her purse and threatens to fire you. She's a bitch! You feel angry.

If you had held a different belief, your emotional response would have been different: A. That would be unbearable. You feel anxious. It is B that causes C.

In the first example, it is not your employer's false accusation and threat that make you angry; it is your belief that she has no right to accuse you, and that she is a bitch. In the second example, it is not her accusation and threat that make you anxious; it is the belief that you must not lose your job, and that losing your job would be unbearable.

The Three Basic Musts Although we all express ourselves differently, according to Albert Ellis and REBT, the beliefs that upset us are all variations of three common irrational beliefs. Each of the three common irrational beliefs contains a demand, either about ourselves, other people, or the world in general.

These beliefs are known as " The Three Basic Musts. Other people must treat me considerately, fairly and kindly, and in exactly the way I want them to treat me. If they don't, they are no good and they deserve to be condemned and punished. I must get what I want, when I want it; and I must not get what I don't want. It's terrible if I don't get what I want, and I can't stand it.

The first belief often leads to anxiety, depression, shame, and guilt. The second belief often leads to rage, passive-aggression and acts of violence.

The third belief often leads to self-pity and procrastination. It is the demanding nature of the beliefs that causes the problem. Less demanding, more flexible beliefs lead to healthy emotions and helpful behaviors Disputing The goal of REBT is to help people change their irrational beliefs into rational beliefs. Changing beliefs is the real work of therapy and is achieved by the therapist disputing the client's irrational beliefs. For example, the therapist might ask, "Why must you win everyone's approval? Insight Albert Ellis and REBT contend that although we all think irrationally from time to time, we can work at eliminating the tendency.

It's unlikely that we can ever entirely eliminate the tendency to think irrationally, but we can reduce the frequency, the duration, and the intensity of our irrational beliefs by developing three insights: We don't merely get upset but mainly upset ourselves by holding inflexible beliefs. No matter when and how we start upsetting ourselves, we continue to feel upset because we cling to our irrational beliefs.
