Rian E. McMullin, Ph.D., is director of the Counseling Research Institute, a licensed clinical psychologist at the Hawaii State Hospital, and on the clinical-associate faculties at the University of Hawaii and the American School of Professional Psychology. He is the author of eight books, including (with T. Giles) Cognitive-Behavior Therapy: A Restructuring Approach and (with B. Casey) Talk Sense to Yourself: A Guide to Cognitive Restructuring Therapy.Review:
“An invaluable tool for effective change.”
- California Bookwatch
“[A] highly accessible guide . . . a useful adjunct to therapy.”
- Human Givens Journal
“Dr. Rian McMullin has followed up his previous books for professionals with this one for the public. In Taking Out Your Mental Trash he’s clearly and directly cited the various types of mistaken beliefs with which we frequently upset ourselves, especially, ’I am superior to other people’ and ’I am a worthless slob for being inferior to others.’ He shows why ’self-esteem’ is misleading and how the reader can achieve unconditional self-acceptance. He gives many cognitive, emotional, and behavioral methods that can be used for self-help purposes. All told, this is an original, witty, and excellent book with which practically every reader who has a problem can gain help.”
- Albert Ellis, Ph.D., Albert Ellis Institute, New York City
“What Rian McMullin has done for professionals, he has also done for the consumer. He has written a clear, comprehensive, and useful book. This is not for the faint of heart who wish to simply dabble at taking control of their lives. If readers carefully and seriously go through each of the steps and do the exercises that McMullin has developed, they will be able to take charge of their lives, their emotions, their thinking, and their relationships. This is a book that I will recommend to my patients.”
- Arthur Freeman, Ed.D., ABPP, Professor of Psychology and Counseling, University of Saint Francis, Fort Wayne, Indiana
