Excellent resource!

This book is certainly one of the best books about REBT for therapists. Walen et al. do a great job to explain the basic concepts of REBT and how to get them across to clients.They deal with difficult situations and how to solve them. Their systematic step-by-step approach of doing REBT consists of:- Getting at the A's- Getting at the C's- Getting at the B's (a crucial point in therapy)- Disputation: general and specific strategies- Homework assignments- The course of therapyNumerous case examples illustrate the authors' points. This book is a great reference book!

Possibly THE best overview of REBT for therapists.

While Ellis is the originator of REBT, he may or may not be the best author on the subject. Walen, Dryden and DiGiusseppe provide the underlying philosophy, the nuts-and-bolts, a boatload of techniques, and special applications of the therapy. I use REBT in practice, and this is the text to which I refer most often. If you are a therapist considering learning more about REBT and how to use it in practice, this is the book for you.
