REBT and the Social Work Exam

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) was Albert Ellis's precursor to CBT. It too aims to identify and challenge irrational thinking. Or, as they say on
REBT is an action-oriented psychotherapy that teaches individuals to identify, challenge, and replace their self-defeating thoughts and beliefs with healthier thoughts that promote emotional well-being and goal achievement.
Will REBT show up on the social work licensing exam? Maybe, maybe not. It's not CBT, which, if you don't see it at least once on the exam, let us know. It'd be a big surprise. Still, it's worth brushing up on REBT...and Gestalt Therapy...and lots of different types of therapy. The knowledge may only get you one answer right on the exam. But a PASS on the big test is made up of lots of individual right answers, right?

Here are some places on the web to get up to speed on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy:
Enjoy and good luck on the exam!
