This chapter reviews research on the association between irrational beliefs (IBs) and general psychiatric symptoms including depression, anxiety, assertiveness problems, and Type A coronary-prone behavior. Increased levels of IBs are associated with emotional disturbances. Now that this relationship appears to be established, several directions for future REBT research are proposed.

Keywords:   irrational beliefs, depression, anxiety, assertiveness, REBT research
