However, because Ellis emphasized the role of particular kinds of cognition in emotional disturbance, REBT has many distinctive features, unique theoretical positions, and clinical strategies. RE BT T H EO RY O F PSY CHOPATHOL OGY REBT theory maintains that cognitions are the most important determinant of emotions; however, REBT recognizes that there may be more than one pathway to emotional arousal. This recognition of multiple paths is exemplified in an early discussion by Albert Ellis. In 1974, Joseph Wolpe (one of the founders of Behavior Therapy) and Ellis debated the role of cognition in psychopathology and psychotherapy at Hofstra University.

REBT theory proposes that generalized ethical principles of right or wrong are distorting and oversimplified for the reasoning adult. What is ethical is specific to each situation. There are no absolute rights and wrongs. In fact, the self-imposition of absolute rights and wrongs is precisely what leads to guilt, shame, anxiety, and depression, as well as to hostility and intolerance of other people. Research in the psychology of moral philosophies, such as that by Kohlberg (1976), suggests the developmental nature of ethical ideas.

Nonetheless, REBT is more aligned with ethical humanism than with religion. ” The concept of “God” is not needed to explain the creation of things (that is the job of science), or to generate an ethical code (for that can be done by clear thinking). Ellis himself was clearly an atheist, and in several articles postulated that although religion (that is, a philosophy of life) may be rational, 14 A BASIC INTRODUCTION TO REBT religiosity (that is, dogmatic and absolute faith unfounded on fact) is not merely the opiate of the masses but a major cause of psychopathology (Ellis, 1987b).
