Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), founded by Albert Ellis, recently celebrated its 40th anniversary as a leading therapy approach within the cognitive-behavioral tradition. Windy Dryden has made numerous contributions to REBT's development over the past 15 years, and many of these contributions are featured in this volume. Inquiries in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy opens with a brief overview of basic REBT theory and practice for readers new to the field and then builds on the discussion in following chapters. Topics include a historical look at the practice of REBT, theoretical developments and practical innovations that have taken place in recent years, and specialized areas of REBT such as brief REBT, behavior and the ABCs, and using REBT in supervision and group settings.
