The Myth of Self-esteem
How Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy Can Change Your Life Foreverav Albert Ellis209Skickas inom 10-15 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.In this illuminatingbook, Ellis provides a lively and insightful explanation of the differences between self-esteem and self-acceptance. Emphasizing the importance of self-acceptance, he examines this theme in the thinking of great religious teachers, philosophers, and psychologists. He then provides exercises for training oneself to change self-defeating habits to the healthy, positive approach of self-acceptance. These include specific thinking techniques as well as emotive and behavioral exercises. He concludes by stressing that unconditional self-acceptance is the basis for establishing healthy relationships with others, along with unconditional other-acceptance and a total philosophy of life anchored in unconditional life-acceptance.

""[A] stimulating examination of how the teachings of the world's greatest thinkers and philosophers dovetail (or don't) with Ellis's three core concepts: unconditional acceptance of the self, others and the world....The book, which includes multiple self-acceptance exercises, may be among his best: Every page offers a fresh insight into rational emotive behavior therapy, Ellis's doctrine of modern stoicism." -Psychology Today "Albert Ellis is a contemporary prophet whose ideas will be remembered along with those of Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu and Sartre. In this important book, he shows how to develop self-acceptance as well as to learn how to create healthy relationships. In a world of increasing involvement with machines (i.e., computers, televisions, video games) and decreasing involvement with people, nothing could be more needed." -Jon Carlson, PsyD, EdD, ABPP Distinguished Professor, Governors State University "This wonderful book, as it helps us move toward greater compassion for ourselves, for others, and for our troubled world, is one more significant contribution by Dr. Ellis-not only toward greater personal happiness, but also toward a better world." -Howard C. Cutler, M.D. coauthor (with the Dalai Lama) of The Art of Happiness, A Handbook for Living
