Nuts & Bolts: How Does Smarter Thinking Work?
Smarter Thinking is a structured and cyclical process through which individuals learns to become aware of their unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours, challenge their thoughts and beliefs, develop more helpful thoughts and beliefs, and then commit to long term change. This long term change reflects a change in the individual’s philosophy of performance and life, as they continually move through the Smarter Thinking process. The below Prezi illustrates the Nuts & Bolts of the Smarter Thinking Process. I will briefly outline what happens at each stage. After step 4 has been completed, step 1 is repeated and back round the Smarter Thinking process we go. It is a cyclical and continuous process.

My book comes out soon. It's about REBT...obviously.
It's called "The Rational Practitioner: The Sport and Performance Psychologist’s Guide To Practicing Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy"
Here is a preview of the book: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/365093484_The_Rational_Practitioner_The_Sport_and_Performance_Psychologist's_Guide_To_Practicing_Rational_Emotive_Behaviour_Therapy
Anyone else see remarkable similarities between Ellis' REBT (1950s) and Neff's ideas of self-compassion (2000s)? Self-Kindness Versus Self-Judgment, Common Humanity Versus Isolation, Mindfulness Versus Over-Identification...all exist in REBT right? https://www.annualreviews.org/doi/10.1146/annurev-psych-032420-031047 1/2
Mega ending of the Banana walkers tonight by James “sport is just cultural heroism” and prior to this “as Camus said we must assume that Sisyphus was happy”
While the stoics get credit for REBT Ellis was also influenced by more recent philosophy.
