An Appraisal of Rational-Emotive Therapy.
Haaga, David A. F.; Davison, Gerald C.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v61 n2 p215-20 Apr 1993
Scrutinizes rational-emotive therapy (RET) on conceptual and empirical grounds, including its reliance on constructive assessment and ethical stance. Notes that, although metanalytic reviews provide support for general utility of RET, more qualitative reviews question internal and external validity of much of published research. Notes that process studies that can shed light on mechanisms of therapeutic change are lacking. (Author/NB)
