Answering A Critique of Rational - Emotive Therapy

  • Albert Ellis


Each of the major ideas presented by Morris in his article "The Rational-Emotive Approach: A Critique" are dealt with by Albert Ellisas he answers some thoughtful criticisms of R. E. T. Ellis counters Morris' major points and suggests in effect that experimental evidence is lacking in support of these various claims. Ellis further suggests thatan "existential" bias pervades and that this is quite different from hisown hard-headed brand of "existentialism".
