I am the principal of a UK based counsellor training college. We teach counselling skills and theory to students in our classrooms and one of the theories is REBT. In fact an entire module is on REBT and many students have found the work and theories of Dr Ellis original and useful, many using REBT in placements. I myself as a practicing counselling psychologist use REBT with some of my clients and the ABC model has enabled change in many of my clients. If not for Dr Ellis there would be many people/clients who would still be suffering from emotional/behavioural problems so I want to say that I am disgusted that such a great man who has done so much for so many is treated so badly by these few spiteful board members of the Albert Ellis Institute. I hope that the US legal system comes up trumps for Dr Ellis and that the board members of the AEI who have plotted his removal from his own institute are dealt with harshly by that system. Massive legal debts for these people sounds the just punishment in my view.
