This excellent book is "must" reading for any dedicated psychotherapist and counselor or psychologically sophisticated lay person. Rational Behavior Therapy describes the only comprehensive, short-term, cognitive-behavioral method of psychotherapy and counseling that produces long-term results. How? In two important ways: 1) It lets the professional and the C/P (client or patient) quickly discover and therapeutically deal directly with the C/Ps' unsuspected, yet problem creating mental, emotional and physical behaviors. 2) It describes research proven, therapeutic emotional self-help concepts and techniques that enable C/Ps progress in therapy or counseling at their own pace, which almost always is as fast as possible.
Here is another PLUS of this book: It's the first self-help based therapeutic manual that integrates in psychotherapy and counseling what is well proven about the right and left brain neuro-psychology of emotionally satisfying self-management. BUT, this book is not just theory. It is a step by step, case example guide to the immediate, clinical practice of Cognitive-Behavioral psychotherapy and counseling.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Dr. Maxie C. Maultsby Jr. is a most unusual psychiatrist; he is a normal people psychiatrist. That means he is a fully trained, board certified psychiatrist, but by choice he works mainly with normal but excessively unhappy or unsuccessful people. Yet, because they are normal, i.e. possess brains that are free of significant malfunctions, Dr. Maultsby's patients and readers of his books want and are mentally capable of achieving as much personal success, plus emotional and spiritual satisfaction, for which they are willing to work.
Normal people's psychiatrists practice the Cognitive-Behavioral psychotherapy and counseling. Dr. Maultsby has had 30 plus years of clinical experience in professional training, research and clinical practice using this treatment method. He completed training in both child and adult psychiatry. He now is a Medical College Professor at Howard University and the author of the only comprehensive, short-term Cognitive-Behavioral psychotherapy and counseling method, called Rational Behavior Therapy, which produces long-term results. Rational Behavior Therapy, Dr. Maultsby's book by the same name, clearly demonstrates this now well established medical fact: "Much, if not most, anxiety and the other negative human emotions in normal people are unsuspectedly and therefore naively created by those entirely sane, intelligent people themselves".
His well know research and effective training and treatment methods have made Dr. Maultsby an internationally recognized expert on scientific, yet practical concepts and techniques of healthy human conflict resolution. His self-help books are used by mental health professionals in every area of personal and inter personal conflict resolutions as well as for corporate management development and change management. Larry Wilson's popular best seller: Play to Win, is admittedly based in large part on Dr. Maultsby's work on the scientific principles and habits of normal people. Dr. Maultsby is truly the quintessential international expert on efficiently effective personal and organizational development and self-management.
