Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is one of the most widely practiced forms of psychotherapy in the world. Its founder, Dr. Albert Ellis, invented REBT. He is also the grandfather of multimodal and cognitive behavior therapy. Ellis wrote some 75 books and hundreds of papers. Many therapies such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and even Mindfulness and many others have been profoundly influenced by the philosophy and psychotherapy of human happiness described by Albert Ellis.
“ One of the main things [Albert Ellis] said to people was this: “Accept yourself as you are, with your imperfections. You’re an imperfect, fallible human”.
This is a powerful permission, and I had never heard anyone say anything like that before, in my life. What an immensely compassionate and kind thing to say to people! ” Renetta Taylor-Bryne, http://www.abc-counselling.com/id140.html
