DISK 1: Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy for Addictions


Learn to use Rational Emotive Behaviour 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 behaviours that are difficult to conquer.





By watching this video, 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.

DISK 2: Coping with the Suicide of a Loved One: An REBT Approach

It is certainly a treat to see one of the most bold and influential psychotherapists of our generation in an actual therapy session. Watch Albert Ellis demonstrate his signature style: confrontative, headstrong and steadfastly rational…and remarkably effective in just one session.

Learn to use Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy by watching the originator of the method in a therapy session with Roseanne, whose husband committed suicide in front of her and her baby daughter ten years ago. Ellis immediately points out how Roseanne uses the irrational beliefs of “condemnation” and “demandingness” to keep upsetting herself about the horrible event. Using REBT techniques, he helps Roseanne separate herself from her actions, reframing her belief that “I did a rotten thing/that makes me a bad person” to “I did a rotten thing/that means I made a mistake, but I am not a bad person.” You’ll be impressed at how quickly Ellis’s reframes take root in Roseanne, as she repeats Ellis’s teachings in her own words and from her own heart.

By watching this video, you'll be able to:

  • Utilize REBT techniques, including defining goals, offering hypotheses about irrational beliefs and new emotions, and disputing inferences.
  • Teach clients the definition of a rational belief, an irrational belief and the REBT philosophy on human growth.
  • Integrate Ellis’s use of confrontation, repetition and rational explanation in your own therapy work with clients.

About Albert Ellis, PhD

Albert Ellis, MA, PhD (September 27, 1913 – July 24, 2007) was an American clinical psychologist who in 1955 developed Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). He is generally considered to be one of the originators of the cognitive revolutionary paradigm shift in psychotherapy and the founder of cognitive-behavioural therapies.


Ellis published his first book on REBT, How to Live with a Neurotic, in 1957. Two years later he organized the Institute for Rational Living, where he held workshops to teach his principles to other therapists. The Art and Science of Love(1960), was his first really successful book, and later he has published 54 books and over 600 articles on REBT, sex and marriage. Many of his books are still amongst Amazon bestsellers (How to Stubbornly Refuse to Make Yourself Miserable About Anything - Yes, Anything! (1988); How to Control Your Anger Before It Controls You (1998); How to Make Yourself Happy and Remarkably Less Disturbed (1999); Overcoming Destructive Beliefs: New Directions for Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (2001) etc.)

A winner of the Outstanding Clinician Award (American Psychological Association 1996), Lifetime Achievement Award (Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies 2005), Lifetime Distinguished Service Award (American Counseling Association 2006) and many others, Ellis prior to his death was described as the “greatest living psychologist” by Psychology Today.

"I love my work and work at my loving," Ellis said. "That is the secret of my unusually happy state."
