SYSTEMS OF PSYCHOTHERAPY: RATIONAL EMOTIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY

With Debbie Joffe Ellis, MDAM

In Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Debbie Joffe Ellis demonstrates this influential and impactful approach to psychotherapy.

Originated by Albert Ellis, rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) is based on the seemingly simple idea that it is not external events that make people happy or unhappy, but rather their internal thoughts about the events or themselves. In this approach, the therapist works to teach clients to identify and challenge their harmful irrational thinking and develop more beneficial and rational habits of thought. The shift toward more rational thinking in turn enables clients to behave more effectively and to create healthy emotions.

In this video, Dr. Joffe Ellis works with a woman in her 60s going through a divorce who is feeling stuck and hopeless. Dr. Joffe Ellis helps the client to recognize the difference between her thoughts and feelings and to begin to identify irrational thoughts and replace them with healthy and rational thoughts that will help her create new, positive, and realistic possibilities in her life.

SYSTEMS OF PSYCHOTHERAPY: DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY

With Alexander L. Chapman, PhD, Rpsych

Dialectical behavioral therapy, or DBT, is an empirically supported, comprehensive treatment that is effective for treating complex mental health problems. Originally developed as an intervention for suicidal women, and widely used to treat borderline personality disorder, DBT is now applied in working with a variety of mental health problems and is especially effective for clients who have difficulty managing and regulating their emotions.

Therapists practicing DBT aim to strike a balance between validation and change by clearly communicating acceptance of who the client is and the challenges the client faces, while at the same time helping the client to learn new skills to improve emotion regulation.

In this session, Dr. Alexander L. Chapman works with a male client who has trouble regulating his anger. Dr. Chapman first highlights and assesses the client's behavior and emotions and then discusses emotion regulation strategies that the client can use to better manage anger in his daily life.

PSYCHOTHERAPY IN SIX SESSIONS: RATIONAL EMOTIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY OVER TIME

With Ann Vernon, PhD

In Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy Over Time, Ann Vernon demonstrates this influential approach, which seeks to help people change self-defeating thoughts so they can feel and behave in more effective ways.

Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), developed by Albert Ellis in the 1950s, was the first of the main cognitiveˇVbehavioral therapies. REBT centers on the theory that people naturally cope with the stressors of life by adjusting their cognitive, emotional, and behavioral reactions. It posits that people have a tendency toward irrational thinkingˇXcreating absolute beliefs for themselves such as "I must always be liked" and "I can't stand it when others don't treat me exactly as I think I must be treated."

Such absolutist thinking is classified as irrational, as these demands are impossible to fulfill, and they in turn create habitually negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. REBT therapists focus on disputing irrational thoughts by showing how they increase a client's level of disturbance. Therapists then provide ways for the client to reduce disturbance through functional, logical, and empirical disputes and by teaching methods that clients use to help themselves become less irrational and more effective in how they think, feel, and act.

In this series of six sessions, Dr. Vernon works with a woman in her 20s who is struggling with anxiety related to leaving home, anger at her stepfather, and her parents' divorce many years ago. Consistent with REBT's present-focus, Dr. Vernon helps her client to recognize that she cannot change the past and, instead, helps her to deal more effectively with her present anger and anxiety. Dr. Vernon uses functional, logical, empirical, and philosophical disputes, as well as weekly homework assignments, to help her client decrease her anger and lessen the intensity of her anxiety.

In this session, Dr. Miller works with a 17-year-old boy who is depressed, abusing marijuana, and who has recently contemplated suicide. Dr. Miller highlights the client's strengths while trying to obtain commitment to treatment in order to reduce his depression and marijuana use and build a life worth living.

SPECIFIC TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC POPULATIONS: BEHAVIOR THERAPY FOR OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER

With Samuel M. Turner, PhD

In Behavior Therapy for ObsessiveˇVCompulsive Disorder, Dr. Samuel M. Turner demonstrates his approach to treating this form of anxiety disorder. Because this approach assumes that obsessiveˇVcompulsive disorder (OCD) derives from an underlying core fear, treatment involves exposing the client to fear-producing stimuli and teaching blocking of compulsive behaviors. The therapist takes an active role in encouraging and directing the client in efforts to prevent habitual obsessive responses to fear. In this session, Dr. Turner works with a 32-year-old woman whose obsessiveˇVcompulsive disorder takes the form of obsessive washing and avoidance behavior. Dr. Turner helps her to dismantle her fear of contamination with exercises that expose her to her core fear. This program features a client portrayed by an actor on the basis of actual case material.

REBT IN ACTION: RATIONAL EMOTIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY FOR ADDICTIONS

With Albert Ellis, PhD

Learn to use Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy with clients struggling with addiction by watching the originator of the method in an actual therapy session. Albert Ellis demonstrates his signature style with a difficult client; using rationality, strong language, and forceful directives, he is remarkably effective in just one session.

Orville would like to reduce his marijuana, alcohol and hallucinogen dependency but doesn't know how. Ellis immediately focuses in on Orville's low frustration tolerance and "self-downing" as the irrational beliefs that sustain his drug and alcohol addictions. Ellis debunks Orville's claim that if he doesn't always behave well, he is a bad person. He clarifies that it is certainly highly preferable to behave well, but that we are all fallible human beings who screw up sometimes. Orville's distractibility and flights into tangential stories challenge Ellis to keep Orville on task. You'll be impressed to see how Ellis remains focused on the issue at hand, pushing Orville to grapple with beliefs that are tough to change and addictive behaviors that are difficult to conquer.

By watching this program, you'll be able to:
~ Utilize REBT techniques with clients struggling with addiction, including offering hypotheses about and disputing irrational beliefs, recognizing secondary gains and supporting rational thinking.
~ Explain the REBT to your clients.
~ Integrate Ellis's use of confrontation, repetition and rational explanation in your own therapy work with clients.

With her upfront and frank style, Linehan defines the client's goals, makes clear to him which behaviors must change immediately, and gets him to agree to postpone suicidality in favor of further investigating her treatment. Throughout the session, Linehan gives voiced-over explanations of why she made certain choices and what compelled her towards different interventions. Prepare to be fascinated, both by the client and by Linehan!

By watching this video, you will learn:

COUPLES THERAPY WITH THE EXPERTS: BEHAVIORAL COUPLES THERAPY

By Richard Stuart
