Treating adult children of alcoholics, clients suffering from chronic pain, sudden infant death syndrome, pathological gambling, fear of flying and performance anxiety are among the topics explored in this volume, which presents new findings in the field of rational-emotive therapy (RET).

Albert Ellis, the pioneer of RET, provides an up-to-date overview of the fundamentals of RET in the opening chapter. Contributors then each describe the clinical problem of a specific population, and present both a rational-emotive conceptualization of the problem and a treatment strategy.
