Dealing with Difficulties in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy
This work addresses the manifold difficulties that both client and therapist bring to Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). It offers ways of tackling difficulties that should assist their resolution and thereby help to build a productive and less stressful therapeutic relationship. The authors stress that the use of persistence, force, ingenuity, energy and persuasion are more likely to overcome blocks in therapy than stale, unimaginative approaches. They see the discovery of new techniques and strategies for removing roadblocks in therapy as one of the continual pleasures and challenges in REBT, and their enthusiasm for problem-solving is communicated to the reader.
