REBT Critique – Book References

A set of book references used in Jim Byrne’s arguments against REBT

Dr-Jim-Self-AcceptanceDr Jim Byrne spent more than ten years reflecting upon the nature of the REBT system of counselling and therapy, and writing papers – initially to defend the system against Bond and Dryden (1996) – but then to critique various weaknesses he found in this system, beginning with the lack of a moral stance in the world!  Eventually, he invalidated the core of REBT – the ABC model – as a form of ‘Extreme Stoicism’ – a denial of the impact of the external world on the mind of the social-individual!

In his 2017 book on this subject – titled

The Fatal Flaws in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (REBT/CBT)

He utilised the following sources of information, and his years of experience in studying this material, to produce a devastating blow to the foundations of REBT:
