RET and the Assertive Process

  • Paul A. Hauck
Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series (NSSB)


The term cognitive-behavioral therapy refers to an important relationship, in simple terms: the relationship between reasoning and action. It also refers to the relationship and the differences between intrapsychic and interpsychic conflicts. Intrapsychic problems are problems we have only with ourselves, as we might on a desert island, or over failing to discipline ourselves enough to stay on a weight control program. Interpsychic problems are those we have because others frustrate us. This is an important distinction to bear in mind because each type requires very distinct applications to reduce the consequent discomforts.
