Rational Coping Statements


Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) has many methods to control your anxiety as thinking, feeling and behaving are interrelated. Your feelings include important thoughts and behaviors, and your actions include important thoughts and feelings. REBT uses varied methods to reduce your disturbed emotions and their corresponding thoughts and behaviors.

Disputing of your Irrational Beliefs generates your effective new Philosophy comprising rational coping statements of positive thinking. Philosophy is a discipline people undertake to understand fundamental truths about themselves, the world, interpersonal relationships, and their relationships to the world. Logic is a major area of Philosophy and Logicians ask questions such as:

What constitutes “good” or “bad” reasoning?

How do we determine whether a given piece of reasoning is good or bad?

Strive to derive some realistic, rational coping statement as you dispute your Irrational Beliefs. Review and revise the coping statements to control your anxiety.
