Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (Medical Treatment)

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (Medical Treatment)


In this video we will talk about how when
we become upset, it is not the events taking place in our lives that upset us; but it is
our beliefs that cause us to become depressed, anxious, sad, etc. To illustrate this, we will be using a simple
ABC model developed by Dr. Albert Ellis: In this model:
(‘A�) refers to Activating event which means whatever it is that started things off: a
circumstance, another person�s behaviour or our own thoughts about something which
has happened. (‘B�) refers to our beliefs. These beliefs
can about ourselves, others, things, situation. Beliefs can be specific or generalised.
(‘C�) refers to the consequence i.e our reaction to (A) in terms of both emotions
and behaviours Let us take an example to understand this:
Say two boys have to make individual presentations in front of the same group. This will be the
first presentation that either of them have ever made and both of them have prepared well.
Yet the first boy at the time of presentation gets nervous, goes blank and his presentation
goes for a toss. Whereas the second boy is confident and makes the presentation effectively.
Both these boys were in exactly the same situations but their emotional and behavioural response
was different. For both the boys the activating event was
facing the audience. For the first boy the activating event triggered a belief that I
am not capable and not good enough which lead to the feeling of nervousness and poor presentation.
For the second boy the activating event triggered a belief that I am capable and good which
lead to the feeling of confidence and effective presentation. Once we understand our behaviour through the
ABC model, in order to create a positive change in our behaviour we can add a DE to the same.
D represents Disputing irrational beliefs E represents creating Effective new belief
Going back to the earlier example let us understand the application of D&E for the boy who got
nervous. So if we were to dispute the original belief
that I am not capable and not good in a way that we could break it along with creating
a effective new belief that I am capable and good, the boy would now begin to feel confident
which given the fact that he is well prepared will help him deliver effectively. I would like to end this video with a request

  1. Great little animation. I'm an online educator – and just wondering what software you used to animate your video? Thanks!

  2. Albert ellis, the creator of REBT said no human is good. Im quoting him when I say "I am not good, I am not bad I just exist". The whole belief section on this video is wrong. Rebt shows us how humans should never rate themselves as good or bad, instead they shouldnt rate themselves at all. The irrational belief that the first student has is "if i do this wrong im going to be a shit, a bad person" and the rational belief would be "if I do this wrong it would be a pain in the ass but i wont be a shit if i do a shitty presentation (i wont be good if I do a good presentation either). Humans are both good and bad. Unratable. Please read Rebt books before teaching people how to overcome their mntal problems. What i just said you can find it in every Albert Ellis book. Thanks

  3. Why are so many videos narrated by annoyingly accented indians? It makes it impossible to listen and learn.

  4. A better D would be. Although I am nervous and lack confidence, I will try my best. Then give a behavior mod for him to do when he gets nervous during the speech.

  6. There are so many things wrong with ichars I dont know where to start. Hypnosis is a pseudoscience with limited evidence that it works better than placebo as treatment for anything as it operates on an individuals suggestibility. The most suggestible you are the more susceptible you are to hypnosis. Its not a good thing though and suggests your brain is weak at detecting nonsense. Related science? Hypnosis isnt a science so I cant imagine what other nonsense you have instore for your viewers that is a related pseudoscience masquerating as evidence based practice. Such a contradiction to use science in that acronym. Dispicable.
