REBT for Anger Management

REBT For Anger Management

Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) focuses on identifying a person’s harmful core beliefs about themselves and the world to change their maladaptive reactions to triggering situations. When used for anger, a therapist offers clients constructive tools to help them determine if these beliefs are justified and warrant negative reactions. This can help them replace an unfavorable response to a trigger with a healthier, more positive one.
