Therapists who Practice Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)

Rational emotive behavior therapy, or REBT, was created by Albert Ellis in the 1950’s, and led to various developments of similar approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). REBT and CBT are very similar in that both focus on the underlying views and/or beliefs that shape our behavior, but REBT has three distinguishing characteristics: 1: it seeks to not just discover and correct underlying beliefs, but also to understand their origin; 2: it encourages unconditional positive self-acceptance, and 3: it seeks to understand secondary disturbances, or worries/beliefs that are caused because of initial worries/ beliefs—for example feeling anxiety because you are afraid you might be anxious.
