REBT has often been criticized for emphasizing cognitive (rational) disputation at the expense of behavioral and emotive approaches (Guidano, 1991; Mahoney, 1991; G.Neimeyer, 1993; R.Neimeyer, 1993). But REBT has always been a multimodal therapy derived from a holistic view of human experience, as I (AE) made clear elsewhere:

The human being may be said to possess four basic processes-perception, movement, thinking, and emotion-all of which are interrelated. Thus, thinking, aside from consisting of bioelectric changes in the brain cells, and in addition to comprising remembering, learning, problemsolving, and similar psychological processes, is sensory, motor, and emotional. Then, instead of saying, “Jones thinks about this puzzle,” we can more accurately say, “Jones perceives-moves-feelsthinks about his puzzle.” Because, however, Jones’s activity in relation to the puzzle may be largely focused upon solving it, and only incidentally on seeing, manipulating, and emoting about it, we may perhaps justifiably emphasize only his thinking.
