A Twenty-Three-Year-Old Girl, Guilty About Not Following Her Parents’ Rules


This is a three-session transcript of Albert Ellis doing REBT with Martha, a young woman with guilt, fears of rejection, and self-damning. Though conducted approximately two decades ago, there is little doubt that, were Dr. Ellis still alive, he would pretty much conduct these sessions today as he did then. What you will read is both vintage Albert Ellis and classic REBT, both of which provide an exceptional tutorial on the theory and practice of this groundbreaking form of psychotherapy by the master himself.
