Abstract or Description
In this review of the current status of rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), we consider two of Ellis's strategies that have helped preserve REBT's presence in the professional zeitgeist. We argue that REBT should be viewed as a unitary approach to cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) and outline its distinctive theoretical and practical features. We acknowledge the reciprocal influence that REBT and CBT have had on one another and provide three examples of such influence. Finally, we provide a brief summary of the current status of REBT research.
