What Is Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and How Does It Work?

  • Demandingness is a dogmatic belief that people, situations, or the universe must or should be a specific way and that if they aren’t, something is wrong.
  • Awfulizing/catastrophizing: exaggerating the impact of an unpleasant incident or situation by believing that it is “the worst thing that could ever happen.”
  • Intolerance to discomfort and frustration: believing that a current or future event would be so bad that the person will never be able to handle it.
  • Exaggerating a person’s qualities or behaviors and using them to criticize the individual or a group of people is known as people-rating or overgeneralizing.
