Three Methods of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy That Make My Psychotherapy Effective.
Ellis, Albert
This paper discusses three serious cognitive-emotive errors clients make when they are confronted with situations that block their important goals and how to act against self-defeating errors and move on to greater mental health and self-actualization. Three of the main ways in which clients think, feel, and act against their best interests are: (1) they evaluate their own performances and try to correct and improve them, but along with that they rate their total self, their being, their personhood; (2) people evaluate others' ideas and feelings, and they often make global ratings of others; (3) people rate their environmental conditions as good or bad. As such, clients are actively encouraged to achieve three highly important cognitive-emotive-behavioral states: (1) unconditional self-acceptance; (2) unconditional other-acceptance; and (3) high frustration tolerance.
