Albert Ellis Live!

First Edition


150 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`A remarkably useful book for the practitioners of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy and other kinds of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Very clearly and intensively covers what effective therapeutic change is and the therapist's and the client's role in following it and in fighting against relapsing. Dryden's and Neenan's book includes many important points that are often omitted from REBT and other therapies. Definitive and thoroughgoing!' - Albert Ellis, President of Albert Ellis Institute

Albert Ellis Live! is a collection of five transcripts of therapy sessions conducted by Albert Ellis, the founding father of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). With commentary by Windy Dryden, bestselling author and expert on REBT, Albert Ellis Live! provides a unique opportunity to `listen in' on a master therapist carrying out the therapy which he originated.

Each of the five transcripts presents a counselling session conducted by Ellis himself with a volunteer client. Each transcript is accompanied by a commentary, in which Windy Dryden explains what Ellis is doing and why.

Published in celebration of Ellis' 90th birthday, Albert Ellis Live! will be invaluable to students and practitioners of this approach, offering them a unique insight into the theory and practice of REBT.
