Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy utilizes conscious current thoughts rather than subconscious memories. REBT is based on ABC’ s theory discovered by very renowned psychologist Albert Ellis. ABC’s theory is about dealing with emotional disturbance in a correct way.
ABC Theory of Emotional Disturbance
A is the Activating Experience, i.e, events which block the desire/pursuit for success, love and comfort.
B is the mediating belief system which is irrational.
C is the emotional or behavioral consequence which is maladaptive.
We at Vishwas Healing Centre use Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy to challenge and then alter the irrational belief system. Vishwas Healing centre during Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy’s sessions point out irrational beliefs associations and inferences of the client by logical Reasoning, suggestions, arguments, persuasion and prescription of home assignments including reality testing of the alternatives suggested and self reinforcement through verbal or any other kind of rewards. We have found Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy is more effective in cases with general anxiety problems and interpersonal difficulties in relationships.
