QUESTION #3 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Chapter 10)
Provide an example from your own life experience (either you or someone you know) that illustrates the A-B-C -D-E Framework in the REBT theory and practice. How would you go about “disputing=D” the irrational belief , and what would be the E=effect, and F=new feeling? Be sure to label each A,B,C,D,E,F accordingly (see example below):

Example: You have a client that is depressed about a breakup.

A (Activating event) = Jake doesn’t like me anymore.
B (Belief)= Jake MUST like me or I will die.
C (Consequence)= depression, feelings of suicide.
D (Disputing)= It is not true that he MUST like me. Even though I want him to like me I do not control him or the universe.
E (Effective new thinking/philosophy)= It would be nice if Jake did like me but he doesn’t. I prefer that Jake like me but I can survive without him.
N=(New Feeling)= regret, sadness, disappointment but no depression or thoughts of suicide.
