Question: What is Rational Living Therapy?
Answer: Rational Living Therapy (RLT) is a very instructive, systematic form of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. RLT is based on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT), Cognitive Therapy (Beck), Neuro-linguistic Programming, Hypnosis Theory and Therapy (Preston), research findings in perception, linguistics, brain functioning, operant conditioning, classical conditioning, social learning, and general semantics.
RLT’s emphasis on methods of persuasion makes RLT very powerful, especially with those “hard-to-reach” and “hard- headed” clients! For a complete description of Rational Living Therapy, visit
