А́льберт Э́ллис — американский психолог и когнитивный терапевт, автор рационально-эмоциональной поведенческой терапии , подхода в психотерапии, рассматривающего негативные эмоции и дисфункциональные поведенческие реакции как появляющиеся не вследствие опыта самого по себе, а вследствие интерпретации этого опыта, то есть как результат неверных когнитивных установок — иррациональных верований . Также был известен как сексолог и один из идеологов сексуальной революции.

Создал и был президентом Института Альберта Эллиса The Albert Ellis Institute.

В 1982 году был признан вторым по влиятельности психотерапевтом мира, после Карла Роджерса ; в 1993 году — первым . Заслуженно делит с А.Беком лавры пионеров когнитивного подхода.


„Лучшие годы вашей жизни — когда вы решаете, что ваши проблемы принадлежат вам. Вы не вините в них мать, экологию или президента. Вы осознаете, что сами контролируете свою судьбу.“

„Искусство любви — это в основном искусство постоянства.“


„The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.“

„There are three musts that hold us back: I must do well. You must treat me well. And the world must be easy.“

„Even injustice has it's good points. It gives me the challenge of being as happy as I can in an unfair world.“

„The art of love... is largely the art of persistence.“

„Acceptance is not love. You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they're alive and human.“

„The emotionally mature individual should completely accept the fact that we live in a world of probability and chance, where there are not, nor probably ever will be, any absolute certainties, and should realize that it is not at all horrible, indeed—such a probabilistic, uncertain world.“


„Stop shoulding on yourself“

„Life is indeed difficult, partly because of the real difficulties we must overcome in order to survive, and partly because of our own innate desire to always do better, to overcome new challenges, to self-actualize. Happiness is experienced largely in striving towards a goal, not in having attained things, because our nature is always to want to go on to the next endeavor.“ The Art & Science of Rational Eating

„If the Martians ever find out how human beings think, they'll kill themselves laughing.“

„For that again, is what all manner of religion essentially is: childish dependency.

If something is irrational, that means it won't work. It's usually unrealistic.

People don't just get upset. They contribute to their upsetness.

People have motives and thoughts of which they are unaware.

Rational beliefs bring us closer to getting good results in the real world.

Self-esteem is the greatest sickness known to man or woman because it's conditional.

The art of love is largely the art of persistence.“


„Spirit and soul is horseshit of the worst sort. Obviously there are no fairies, no Santa Clauses, no spirits. What there is, is human goals and purposes as noted by sane existentialists. But a lot of transcendentalists are utter screwballs.“

„Too many people are unaware that it is not outer events or circumstances that will create happiness; rather, it is our perception of events and of ourselves that will create, or uncreate, positive emotions.“ Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy

„Much of what we call emotion is nothing more or less than a certain kind - a biased, prejudiced, or strongly evaluative kind - of thought.“ Rational Psychotherapy and Individual Psychology

„The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.“
