REBT until recently was previously named Rational Therapy and Rational Emotive Therapy with the field of practising Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). It is the practice of comprehensive, active-directive, philosophy and an empirically based psychotherapy which does focus on resolving personal emotional and behavioural problems and disturbances thus enabling the patient to proceed toward and happier more fulfilling lifestyle.
One of the core fundamentals of REBT is that many people and human beings in general do not get stressed and upset with regards to unfortunate adversities but its how they conduct their mind and views of reality via their language, evaluation beliefs, meaning and philosophies about the world and people other than themselves that creates the disturbance.
A popular REBT framework thus assumes that people have both an innate rational (meaning, self- and social-helping and constructive thoughts) and irrational (meaning, self- and social-defeating and unhelpful thoughts) tendencies and leanings. It is the skill of the therapist that helps point the individual to this self help.
REBT may be used for the treatment of anger, addiction (and withdrawal), anxiety, avoidance, clinical, hurt, guilt or shame, self-blame, self-pity, depression and for repetitive behaviours and behaviour tendencies like procrastination, over-compulsiveness
