Abstract or Description

In this study, I analysed Albert Ellis’s posthumous contribution to the APA “Theories of Psychotherapy” series (Ellis and Joffe Ellis 2011) for evidence of errors and confusions with respect to the “ABCs” of REBT. A total of 74 of such errors/confusions were found with most being made about beliefs at “B” (n = 59), particularly about irrational beliefs (n = 38). A variety of errors and confusions were also made about the relationship between “B” and “C” and about emotional “Cs”. Weaknesses of the current study were noted and suggestions for future research made.
