Rational emotive therapy book
Joel Kovel (1978) refers to rational emotive therapy (RET) as part of a postanalytic group of therapies and in particular as part of the modern human potential movement that has evolved since the 1950s. In fact, RET was the brainchild of Albert Ellis and produced as part of a theory of personality and research in clinical psychology. Whilst ostensibly part of the human potential movement it became more abrasive as the overall political culture in Britain and America changed from the mid-1970s.
