Abstract

With the prevalence of mental illness continuing to rise, the time is at hand to review the literature of clinical psychology to investigate where once innovative psychotherapies like cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and rational emotive behaviour therapy (REBT) deviated from progressive and constructive methods of averting psychopathology. Failure to alleviate mental disorders have exposed, both the general population and indispensable members of our society (e.g. firefighters; first responders; emergency services) to endure significant distressing life experiences. It is the contention of the current study, to investigate aspects of positive cognition like rationality and resiliency, indicating beneficial mental health outcomes.
