Current Issues In Rational Emotive Therapy Psychology Revivals from the Author: Windy Dryden. In his earlier book Rational-Emotive Therapy: Fundamentals and Innovations Dr Dryden outlined the central features of Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET) as it had developed in and from the work of Albert Ellis. He then proceeded to discuss innovations within the theory, several of which had been instigated by the author. Originally published in 1987, this book builds upon these latter elements. It discusses the theoretical basis of RET, arguing that it can be accurately described as theoretically consistent eclectic therapy, and analyses the problems encountered in, and the benefits derived from, its practice. At the time this book provided a state of the art discussion of RET and will still be of interest for those involved in counselling, psychotherapy, clinical psychology, psychiatry and social work.

Rational Emotive Therapy Psychology Revivals from the Author: Windy Dryden. Rational-emotive therapy was developed over a number of years from the work of Albert Ellis, who set up the Institute of Rational-Emotive Therapy in New York. As a form of therapy it integrates some of the features of both the behaviour therapies and the more traditional psychotherapies, although its closest links are with cognitive behaviour therapy. Originally published in 1984, this was the first book by a British author on this subject and it brings together all the author’s previous work in this area. Its unique character is that it presents both the fundamentals, based on the work of Ellis, and innovations, developed in part by the author, extending this work. The book therefore combines theory and practice and will be of interest to those in counselling, clinical psychology, psychiatry and social work, as well as those in nursing and occupational therapy.

Radical Approaches To Social Skills Training Psychology Revivals from the Author: Peter Trower. Originally published in 1984, one of the few facts that emerged clearly in the beleaguered field of psychology and mental health at the time was the extent of poor social skills in psychiatric patients, the mentally handicapped and problem adolescents. As a result, during the 1970s, social skills training – espoused as a form of behaviour therapy – seemed to offer great promise, based on the notion that social skills, like any other skills, are learnt and can be taught if lacking. However, in evaluating social skills training, many investigators found that skills did not endure and generalise. This book attempts a major re-assessment of social skills training. It examines the underlying paradigms, which are shown to be fundamentally behaviourist. Such paradigms, it is argued, severely constrain the aims and method of current types of training. Thus the book develops what is termed an ‘agency’ approach, based on man as a social agent who actively constructs his own experiences and generates his own goal-directed behaviour on the basis of those constructs. This new model is developed in both theoretical and practical ways in the main body of the book and should, even today, be of great interest to all those involved with social skills training.

Person Centred Therapy And Cbt from the Author: Roger Casemore. Why do I need to learn about CBT and/or the Person-centred Approach? What can these techniques contribute to my counselling training and practice? This book has some of the answers, showing humanistic, CBT and integrative therapists how to get to grips with each other's approaches. CBT has become more fully present in the therapeutic landscape and therapists from other modalities are increasingly being required to understand or even train in the approach. Responding to this growing pressure for change, Person-centred therapist Roger Casemore joins forces with Jeremy Tudway. Together they show how counsellors can respect and value each other's approaches by more clearly understanding the similarities and differences in theory, philosophy and practice. They clarify how therapists draw upon this knowledge in their practice without betraying the values of their core approach. This book is recommended for anyone studying Person-centred or CBT modules on counselling & psychotherapy courses, or experienced practitioners wishing to adapt their practice for NHS settings. Roger Casemore is currently an Associate Fellow in Lifelong Learning at the University of Warwick and has a private practice as a therapist and supervisor of other therapists, based in Worcester. Jeremy Tudway is a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and a director of Phoenix Psychological Services, Warwickshire. In addition to this he lectures in CBT at the University of Warwick.

Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy from the Author: Windy Dryden. Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy: Theoretical Developments is a cutting edge examination of the theory behind this popular approach within the cognitive-behavioural tradition. Distinguished practitioners and authors discuss the relevance of: · cross-disciplinary factors affecting REBT · REBT as an intentional therapy · differentiating preferential from exaggerated and musturbatory beliefs in REBT · irrational beliefs as schemata. Thought-provoking presentation of case studies and the latest theory revision give Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy: Theoretical Developments a distinctive slant: a challenging discussion of the approach's openness to revision from within and outside the ranks of REBT, and its implications for the future.

Cognition And Emotion from the Author: Eric Eich Professor of Psychology University of British Columbia. Recent years have witnessed a revival of research in the interplay between cognition and emotion. The reasons for this renaissance are many and varied. In the first place, emotion theorists have come to recognize the pivotal role of cognitive factors in virtually all aspects of the emotion process, and to rely on basic cognitive factors and insight in creating new models of affective space. Also, the successful application of cognitive therapies to affective disorders has prompted clinical psychologists to work towards a clearer understanding of the connections between cognitive processes and emotional problems. And whereas the cognitive revolutionaries of the 1960s regarded emotions with suspicion, viewing them as nagging sources of "hot" noise in an otherwise cool, rational, and computer-like system of information processing, cognitive researchers of the 1990s regard emotions with respect, owing to their potent and predictable effects on tasks as diverse as object perception, episodic recall, and risk assessment. These intersecting lines of interest have made cognition and emotion one of the most active and rapidly developing areas within psychological science. Written in debate format, this book covers developing fields such as social cognition, as well as classic areas such as memory, learning, perception and categorization. The links between emotion and memory, learning, perception, categorization, social judgements, and behavior are addressed. Contributors come from the U.S., Canada, Australia, and France.
