Stress Counselling is a comprehensive study of the theory and practice of the Rational Emotive Behaviour approach applied to stress counselling and psychotherapy. Albert Ellis pioneered Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT), which has since been adopted internationally. This approach enables the clients to embark on a course of effective counselling which has a clear beginning and end.
This book discusses techniques and solutions to common problems and also provides guidance on conducting group work. Its comprehensive coverage includes additional material on techniques such as skills training, relaxation methods, hypnosis and biofeedback.
I refer back to this book on a regular basis.
This book is really useful because it not only covers important REBT principles, but applies them directly to stress related issues. In sport this is crucial and is suitable for both applied psychology modules and stress modules. The activities are also useful as they inform tasks done in lessons with students to enhance understanding of REBT.
