Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy [REBT], Cognitive Behaviour Therapy [CBT] and
Meseron Therapy are three uniquely and very effective cognitive therapies used in clinical
psychology practice. It is essential to clearly spell out the difference in the therapies as some
psychologists in the past have experienced difficulty differentiating them. Rational Emotive
Behaviour Therapy [REBT] was developed by Albert Ellis  based on the rationale that
irrational thinking is the root cause of psychological disturbances. Cognitive behaviour
therapy [CBT] by Aaron Beck , posits that how individuals view situations may result
in psychological disturbances while Meseron Therapy by Alfred Awaritefe  postulates
that psychological disturbances arise as a result of faulty speaking as seen in the distortion of
our appraisal mechanism, acquiescing to negativity and incongruence of striving and goals.
This paper attempts to further explain each therapy in detail.
