This practical guide presents Leahy's multidimensional model of resistance in cognitive therapy. Richly illustrated with case examples and session vignettes, the book addresses a variety of ways that clients may resist basic therapeutic procedures: noncompliance with agenda setting and homework assignments, splitting transference with other therapists, inappropriate behavior, and premature termination. Underlying processes of resistance are explored, from the desire for validation to risk aversion and self-handicapping. Also highlighted are ways that the therapist's own responses may inadvertently impede change. Provided are innovative tools for getting treatment back on track, including targeted interventions, in-session "experiments," and questionnaires and graphic models to share with clients.

With a new foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD, ScD, St. John's University "Albert Ellis has written many books on his favorite topic Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. Although he writes on that topic very well, he often does not write about generic psychotherapy. REBT is an integrative form of psychotherapy. Following this model, psychotherapists can incorporate many diverse techniques and strategies to change clients' dysfunctional behaviors and emotions . Much of what Al identifies as good REBT in this book is just good psychotherapy. Because people so universally identify Al with REBT, people may generally overlook his wisdom as a clinician. Having worked with Al for more than thirty years, I have been fortunate enough to learn from him. Much of the knowledge I learned from Al and cherish the most is not necessarily about REBT theory. They concern wise ways of thinking about clinical problems. That is why, out of all Al's books, this is my favorite. This is Al Ellis, the clinician." -- From the Foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD, ScD, Director of Professional Education, Albert Ellis Institute; Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, St. John's University Now available in an affordable paperback, this 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. Ellis charts the changes in the field that have taken place in the 20 years leading up to 2002, when this edition was originally published. The book also integrates recent therapies into REBT, including psychotherapy, solution-focused therapy, and recent findings of experimental psychology.

Assessment and Case Formulation in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a comprehensive guide to key areas of professional knowledge and skill. The successful outcome of therapy depends on the therapist's ability to work collaboratively with clients to create rounded assessments and formulations as a solid basis for therapeutic work. Drawing directly on their own clinical work, the authors describe how assessment and formulation should evolve throughout the process. The case examples chosen include helping individuals with axis I and II problems such as psychosis, depression, borderline personality disorder, and family case formulation.

"One of the memorable and influential psychologists provides the `uncensored' story of his life and times, including the development of the revolutionary REBT approach to psychotherapy. All Out! is the master guide to full and rational living and a must read."---Jon Carlson, PSYD, EDD, distinguished professor, Governors State University "All Out! is an outrageously honest and astonishingly authentic autobiography by one of the most influential psychologists of the twentieth Century, and of the twenty-first century as well. Ellis was also one of the great humanitarians of his era; he certainly walked his talk, whether he was changing the course of psychotherapy, relieving the suffering of countless men and women, or demonstrating that one is never too old to find true love."---Stanley Krippner, PHD, professor of psychology, Saybrook University. coauthor of Haunted by Combat: Understanding PTSD in War Veterans, and fellow at the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality "For those famous psychotherapists who have the knowledge, charisma, and creativity to create a whole new approach to psychotherapy, the question of how they live their Own lives and integrate their own therapeutic principles into the art of living is a source of continual curiosity. In this book, and in his inimitable way, Albert Ellis reminisces on over ninety years of his life and provides very frank but deep insight into his fears, anxieties, and failings, and how he dealt with them using the principles of change he pioneered. All psychotherapists, and anyone who has ever sought psychotherapy, will benefit greatly from this entertaining and insightful book."---David H. Barlow, PHD, ABPP, professor of psychology and psychiatry, and director, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University "Albert Ellis lived an `all out' life, and he has gone `all out' in this no-holds-barred autobiography. Intense, quirky, and brutally honest, the book reflects the man himself both in content and in style. Expect to be prodded, shaken, and stirred by one of the most remarkable psychologists of the modern era."---Steven C. Hayes, foundation professor, University of Nevada, and author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life "All Out! is an emotional romp that engagingly recounts the life of one of history's greatest and most prolific contributors to psychotherapy. With uncompromising flair, Ellis dragged psychotherapy from its murky beginnings, clarified its essential lessons, made it practical, and brought it into people's homes. Inimitably Ellis: revolutionary, iconoclast, humorist, legend---always teaching always entertaining, always provoking attitudes that lead to self-determined joy."---Jeffrey K. Zeig, PHD, director, the Milton H. Erickson Foundation "Dr. Ellis has had such an impact that...clinical psychologists ranked him ahead of Freud when asked to name the figure who had exerted the greatest influence on their field."---New York Times In this audacious, illuminating, and thoroughly enjoyable memoir, Albert Ellis, pioneer of cognitive psychology and the renowned creator of one of the most successful forms of psychotherapy---Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)---does indeed go "all out." Ellis recounts the memorable relationships, fascinating experiences, and challenging disappointments of his life from early childhood to age ninety-three (Ellis died in 2007). He discusses how he used REBT to work his way through all manner of challenges and emotional roadblocks. A tour de force of stimulating ideas, colorful descriptions of memorable and often very personal relationships, and straightforward self-analysis, All Out! is pure Ellis: witty, brilliant, unique, and, above all, honest. This memoir is the definitive summation of the life and work of one of the world's most fascinating, successful, and honored therapists. During his long and successful professional life, Ellis wrote more than eighty books and eight hundred articles, established the Albert Ellis Institute, conducted his famous Friday Night Workshops, trained professionals, saw clients and groups, and traveled the world to spread the word about REBT. With this hectic yet stimulating schedule, finding the time to write one's memoirs might seem a daunting task to an ordinary individual. Luckily for all of us, Ellis was far from ordinary. In All Out! Ellis takes an unflinching look at the ups and downs of his personal life and how he continually used his famous therapeutic technique on himself to work through many choices, challenges, and relationships. As Ellis says in his introduction, "Because I am a well-known therapist, people would like to know whether I... follow my own teachings. Doctor, cure thyself. Well, do I?" Indeed he does. With candor and humor, Ellis demonstrates that he has learned from life experiences to find ways to deal with the many issues he confronted by reflecting on both his victories and his defeats. And, yes, Ellis considers that people might be just a little curious about the personal life of a noted sexologist. The first five chapters chronicle Ellis's early years. In part 2, Ellis includes some astonishing revelations about his personal life never before made public, and in typical Ellis fashion he examines these controversial actions under a ruthlessly honest light. One chapter deals with those who influenced Albert Ellis both personally and professionally. In later chapters, he discusses how he faced serious health issues without giving in or giving up. And throughout the book, he unabashedly shares his feelings about his union with the greatest love of his life, his wife and soul mate Debbie Joffe Ellis, who had the most profound and transforming effect on his life and experience of love. In the chapter Ellis wrote shortly before his death, he recounts with considerable sadness and frustration being ousted from the institute he founded by members of the board of directors in 2005. Until the very end of his life, Ellis fought for the right to practice in the facility he established in 1959. Some readers might feel a sense of helpless anger at how Ellis was treated by the forces of the "bogus Albert Ellis Institute." The volume's final chapter was written by Ellis's wife, psychologist and writer Debbie Joffe Ellis, who provides a touching account of her husband's final years, which were consumed with fighting the injustices mentioned above, as well as severe and debilitating illness. Not surprisingly, given the life he led, Ellis met these challenges with typical bravery, strength, humor, and love. It is a fitting conclusion to an amazing life that was truly lived All Out!

A psychotherapist and long-time acquaintance of Albert Ellis presents a biography of one of the leading contributors to the theory and practice of modern psychotherapy. Ellis, a prodigious writer, has been a center of controversy for his writings on sex, and for his development and advocacy of rational-emotive therapy. Wiener provides good insights into how ideas are shaped by a scientist's personal characteristics. Choice The volume is fascinating: Ellis is and has been outspoken and intellectually stimulating to listeners on his favorite topic: `how to live well'. Psychological Reports This fascinating study portrays Ellis as a living model of his own therapy. The author details how Albert Ellis arrived his theories through his need to find a way of handling his own psychologically neglected childhood and adolescence. Drawing upon the recollections of Ellis' brother, childhood friends, Ellis himself, his associates and companions, former students and patients, and Ellis' autobiographical notes and correspondence, Wiener presents an account of the man who, during the mid-fifties, revolutionized psychotherapy with a more direct, active style of treatment. Ellis maintained that a person gains nothing by considering and treating himself as if he had been victimized. Rather, the person needs immediately to start changing himself by adopting a different, more objective attitude toward his problem. This alternative to psychoanalysis is termed RET, or Rational Emotive Therapy, and is a direct forerunner of the behavioral cognitive therapy approach.

Helping clients to develop alternative and more constructive viewpoints to tackle their problems lies at the heart of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). This development is facilitated by the quality of the argument- not to be confused with arguing- that therapists present to their clients. Students as well as experienced practitioners frequently complain that they are ?stuck? when confronted with some clients? self-defeating thoughts and beliefs; they lack or cannot think of good and persuasive arguments to put forward at the time.The purpose of this book is to provide therapists with ideas and arguments they can present to and build on in their discussions with clients. This book represents an addition to the therapist?s ?argumentarium? in the same way that new techniques are added to the therapist?s armamentarium. It will appeal not only to cognitive behavioural practitioners, novice and experienced alike, but also to every therapist who wants to improve their current repertoire of rational arguments to promote client change.
