Chapter I is a meta-analysis examining the effectiveness of Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) at reducing emotional distress. A systematic search was conducted according to specific inclusion criteria and all relevant included studies were quality assured. Subsequent data extraction was completed. The results found that REBT was significantly more effective than nonactive treatments at reducing distress for anxiety and anger. However, REBT was equally effective when compared with active treatments. Chapter II is the empirical paper examining the theoretical underpinning of two Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive Therapy (CT). Participants were recruited from an undergraduate university programme and the National Health Service. There was some evidence supporting the REBT theory of demands being more important than self-downing beliefs when examining the student sample but this was not consistent for the clinical sample. The research highlighted the need for more understanding on both forms of implicit and explicit demands, the need for better measures and suggested recommendations for future research.
