WINNER OF THE WEEK; Paralyzed Patient Can Now Write as Fast as Smartphone By ‘Mindwriting’ With Brain Signals Albert Ellis (1913-2007) Albert Ellis was an influential psychologist who developed rational emotive behavior therapy. Ellis is considered the originator of cognitive behavior therapy, although he used the term rational emotive therapy, later changing it to rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT). From the late 1940s onwards, Ellis worked on rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) Ellis was now advocating a new more active and directive type of psychotherapy. In 1955, he presented rational therapy (RT). In RT, the therapist sought to help the client understand—and act on the understanding—that his personal philosophy contained beliefs that contributed to his own emotional pain. This new approach stressed actively working to change a client’s self-defeating beliefs and behaviors by demonstrating their irrationality, self-defeatism and rigidity. Ellis believed that through rational analysis and cognitive reconstruction, people could understand their self-defeatingness in light of their core irrational beliefs and then develop more rational constructs.
