  1. Although I am familiar with REBT, I do not know why the name was changed. However, I searched Google under the key words "'Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy' history" to get these possible sources: (Search within each one for "Rational Emotive Therapy".)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rational_Emotive_Behavior_Therapy
    http://www.nacbt.org/historyofcbt.htm
    http://www.helptoheal.co.uk/rational-emotive-behavior-therapy.html

    Possibly it is because he added D (Disputing irrational thoughts) and E (Evaluating the effect to develop a new way of thinking) to his A-B-C model.

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
