My therapist keeps talking about it.


Answer by  timeismoney (994)

Rational Emotive Therapy (RET) is a systematic means of addressing how we think about what happens to us. Thoughts have much to do with emotions. In RET, a client learns to change thoughts toward rational or logical thinking in order to feel better. Rational emotive behavior is improved thinking.

REBT - Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy - focuses on using reason and logic to understand one's own emotions, behaviors, and the world around them. It is not the behavior that is characterized as "rational emotive;" these adjectives describe the type of therapy that helps people change their attitudes and behaviors based on clear thinking.

Our emotions are deeply influenced by the way we think about our lives and the world. By developing a rational outlook, we can achieve healthy "rational emotive" behavior.

This is a behavior triggered by some emotional experience either of the past or the present time in order for one to cope with a traumatic situation or experience. It is the only way the brain is able to focus on a incoming threat so that the fight or flight judgment is made.
