This study examines the efficacy (effectiveness) of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy
(REBT) in the management of stress in military personnel. Forty Five (45) out of Sixty (60)
military personnel drawn from Army, Navy, and Air Force who obtained high scores on SCL-
90 and MSI were randomly placed into experimental, placebo, and control groups consisting
of 15 participants each. The pretreatment scores of the three groups were taken. The
experimental group received 10 REBT sessions, the placebo group had 10 sessions but only
discussed professionalization in the Nigerian military. The control group received no
treatment. The results showed that pos-treatment scores of the experimental group were
lower than their pretreatment scores as that of the placebo and control groups. Using
ANOVA to determine the significant difference in the three groups, it was found that the
experimental group showed significant differences in all 11 measures. The results were
discussed in terms of the efficacy of REBT in the management of stress in military personnel.
