INTRODUCTION In this chapter I discuss the notion that while RET therapists prefer to encourage their clients to achieve a profound philosophic change by replacing their irrational Beliefs with rational Beliefs, this is not always possible. In such cases, RET therapists are advised to make various compromises in helping clients deal with their problems in ways which do not involve philosophic change. These alternative strategies are termed 'compromises' in that, while not ideal, they often bear more fruit than the preferred strategies of RET.
