Rational Emotive Behavior
Often emotional problems maybe the consequence of irrational thinking. Thus changing such patterns of thinking can help one address their problems effectively and replace irrational thinking with rational thinking. The result of irrational beliefs is negative feelings and the result of rational beliefs is positive feelings and better adjustment. Unhealthy negative feelings give rise to conditions such as guilt, shame, anger, jealousy, anxiety and depression. This form of treatment encourages the person to change unhealthy thoughts and feelings into flexible and more adaptive thoughts. It is based on the beliefs that humans have ability to reflect and think about their experiences, thoughts, feelings and behaviour, thus one can also gain control over how he thinks about a particular situation. This will help you understand your problem more clearly and behave productively. This form of treatment can be used in anger issues and depression.
