    Question:
    What is Rational Living Therapy?

    Answer: Rational Living Therapy (RLT) is a very instructive, systematic form of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. RLT is based on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT), Cognitive Therapy (Beck), Neuro-linguistic Programming, Hypnosis Theory and Therapy (Preston), research findings in perception, linguistics, brain functioning, operant conditioning, classical conditioning, social learning, and general semantics.

    RLT’s emphasis on methods of persuasion makes RLT very powerful, especially with those “hard-to-reach” and “hard-headed” clients!

    About Rational Living Therapy

    Rational Living Therapy (RLT) is a cognitive-behavioral approach developed by Aldo R. Pucci, MA, LPC. RLT has its roots in Rational Behavior Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Hypnotherapy, NLP, and brain and body functioning research. RLT is a shorter-term, highly instructional, research-based therapy that incorporates proven therapeutic techniques.

    RLT is a very systematic approach to helping people help themselves. Compared to other forms of psychotherapy, RLT is very easy to learn and to begin implementing in one's practice. Despite the fact (or maybe because of it) that RLT is a relatively uncomplicated treatment approach, it is very powerful and its techniques have been proven effective.

    Aldo R. Pucci, MA, LPC is the progenitor of Rational Living Therapy. He is the president of the National Association of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapists and the Rational Living Therapy Institute.

    Pucci is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, a Certified Medical Hypnotherapist, and a Certified Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist. He was trained in Rational Behavior Therapy by internationally acclaimed psychiatrist, Maxie C. Maultsby, Jr., M.D.
