His research on all things REBT is a vital contribution to the field
Using a single-subject design, data showed more facilitative interpretations of anxiety and confidence, increased self-confidence, decreased cognitive anxiety, and decreased somatic anxiety for two athletes. Performance improvements were also evident. @SmartThinkPro 2/2
Another great example of using #REBT with athletes came from @DrOwenT Ian Maynard and Sheldon Hanton in 2007. They used one-to-one REBT with female elite field hockey players to help ‘identify,’ ‘dispute,’ and ‘replace’ negative anxiety symptoms. 1/2 https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/10413200701599140
A practical and sensible response to a solid question. https://twitter.com/drmjturner/status/1362779105041797126
@Mikey_Roberts89 No worries. 👍 Research is research! The real world is of course different. REBT is all about flexibility - it would be paradoxical to be dogmatic about an approach that challenges dogma. Here is a paper where we compare some different CBTs - https://www.researchgate.net/publication/336530929_One_Case_Four_Approaches_The_Application_of_Psychotherapeutic_Approaches_in_Sport_Psychology @rebtsport
@DrMJTurner @rebtsport It would be equally paradoxical for ACT to be an inflexible tool when a central tenet is to develop psychological flexibility! Thanks for sharing Martin. I also found the following a useful read on this topic: https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/CAN-RATIONAL-EMOTIVE-BEHAVIOR-THERAPY-(REBT)-AND-BE-Ellis/310f5890790dfea8e306d2abdfdea45a2a1928df
