This long-awaited updated edition takes a look at the underlying causes of resisting cognitive-emotional-behavioral change and the methods used to overcome them. Written in present-action language, Ellis gives an overview of the basic principles of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy. He also includes changes in the field of psychotherapy during the last two decades. The content is expanded to integrate new therapies into REBT, including psychotherapy, solution-focused therapy, and recent findings of experimental psychology.

From the Publisher:

"Ellis has not lost any of his energy or intensity....[Overcoming Resistance] is as invigorating and clearly written as were his earlier works....In his vintage writing style, Ellis employs a new terminology representing his basic theoretical concepts....[He] offers a plethora of methods and techniques to challenge or dispute irrational behaviors....Ellis expands and integrates REBT with such diverse theorists as Freud, Jung, Adler, Rogers, and Perls. However, Ellis's best suggestions, I believe, come from his more traditional behavioral approaches"
-- Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy: An International Quarterly

"Over the years, Albert Ellis has written literally scores of mental health books....[His] latest text is a worthy addition to the REBT armamentarium. Clinical psychology students and behavioral clinicians alike will benefit from reading this book, which is well-written and calculated to maintain the reader's interest."
--Child and Family Behavior Therapy

"In its first edition, this was my favorite Ellis REBT book. In its second edition, it is now even better! But it! It's a 'must'!"
--Windy Dryden Pace Goldsmiths College, London
