RATIONAL EMOTIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY (REBT)

Rational emotive behavior therapy attempts to teach an individual through behavioral and cognitive techniques to replace self-defeating thoughts to achieve more effective ways of feeling and behaving. It entails explaining how the negative images and thoughts are self-defeating and then showing the subject how they can be changed to a more positive outcome.
