9780387263748: Rational Emotive Behavioral Approaches to Childhood Disorders: Theory, Practice and Research

Since the groundbreaking first edition of Rational Emotive Approaches to the Problems of Childhood by Albert Ellis and Michael Bernard two decades ago, our understanding of the nature and treatment of children’s problems has grown considerably. Now in a completely new volume, Albert Ellis and children’s REBT specialist Professor Michael Bernard have revised and updated this pioneering volume to reflect both the latest in clinical practice and research.

Fourteen expert contributors (including many from the original) share with the editors a deep commitment to integrating REBT with other cognitive-behavioral methods, and to providing young people with developmentally appropriate care. Together they give readers a practical framework for conducting assessment, treatment, and prevention with individuals, clients and groups as well as in family and school settings.

Key features of this new edition include:

  • Developmental considerations in using REBT with children and adolescents
  • Specific chapters devoted to major disorders -- aggression, phobias anxiety, depression, academic underachievement, and ADHD
  • Latest strategies for challenging and changing the irrational beliefs of young people
  • Techniques for building key REBT skills: emotional resilience and frustration tolerance
  • Extensive research findings on the efficacy of REBT with young people
  • Brand-new material on special issues -- involving parents, conducting group sessions, and working with exceptional children
  • An overview of Rational Emotive Education and You Can Do It! Education, school-based applications of REBT

With coverage this thorough, Ellis, Bernard, and collaborators have created a resource of immediate value to child and adolescent mental health practitioners including school psychologists, school counselors, school social workers, behavior therapists, and family therapists, and educators involved in helping young people overcome behavioral disorders.

Several professional societies have honored him: He holds the Humanist of the Year Award of the American Humanist Association, the Distinguished Psychologist Award of the Academy of Psychologists in Marital and Family Therapy, and the Distinguished Practitioner Award of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists. The American Psychological Association has given him its major award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Knowledge (and the American Association for Counseling and Development has given him its major Professional Development Award.) He has published more than 70 books and over 700 articles on psychotherapy, sex, love, and marital relationships. Still going strong, he sees about 70 individual clients and conducts 5 group therapy sessions each week at the psychotherapy clinic of the Institute, supervises interns and postdoctoral fellows, and gives numerous talks and workshops in the United States and abroad.

Professor Michael E. Bernard is the Founder of You Can Do It! Education, a program for promoting student social-emotional well-being and achievement that is being used in over 6,000 schools in Australia, New Zealand, England and North America. After receiving his doctorate in educational psychology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, he worked for 18 years in the College of Education, University of Melbourne, Australia.

He is a professor at the University of Melbourne, Faculty of Education.

Review:

From the reviews:

"After practicing rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) for more than 20 years with both children and adults, I found this edited collection of chapters on various topics of child behavior evolving, enlightening, and reenergizing. ... there has not been such a well-edited collection of the latest in REBT with children since the 1980s. ... Child therapists from almost any discipline would benefit from reading this text and incorporating the described REBT tools and specialized techniques." (Lockie McGehee Johnson, PsycCRITIQUES, August, 2006)
