Abstract

As a result of the many demands, as well as lack of time, school counselors need to work with an effective short-term theory. Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) fits this description because the general goal of REBT is to attain positive mental health within the least amount of time and with minimal expenditure.

Because of its efficiency, and its applicability to individual, small group, classroom, and adults, school counselors should consider using REBT in the school setting. The preventative and self-help focus of REBT, and the teaching materials developed around this theory fit well into the school setting. By applying REBT principles with the whole school population, school counselors can affect the entire school atmosphere and perhaps home environments. In addition, school counselors should continue to look for ways to verify the efficacy of REBT. As Albert Ellis stated, "Our future is in education."
