In this review of the current status of rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), we consider two of Ellis's strategies that have helped preserve REBT's presence in the professional zeitgeist.

We acknowledge the reciprocal influence that REBT and CBT have had on one another and provide three examples of such influence. Finally, we provide a brief summary of the current status of REBT research
