I have struggled with intense anxiety and depression for many years. My counselor who still uses RET (REBT) is helpful. I have read Feeling Good (CBT) along with other books of RET author Albert Ellis...but I have difficulty finding a way that makes sense in disputing my thoughts that I stick with. I am willing to put the time in but I am curious is anyone here is willing to share their own style of doing CBT or RET homework that works for them. I'm not asking for shortcuts but unique ways you may have tweaked either layout or jotting down things. I am open to whatever you might suggest. (For what it is worth, I find Albert Ellis' writing rather strange but understand the philosophy of REBT and CBT.)

I am looking for books investigating the occult as a phenomenon, its history, and its possibilities. Maybe that sounds simple, but I'm also picky. [more inside]

Anyone have good ideas of characters who personify over-emotional thinking, over-rational thinking and a healthy balance of both?
The missus leads a group at a recovery center, and she's trying to find examples to show the patients to help them understand between emotional and rational thinking. The best we've come up with is Spock/McCoy/Kirk; is there a good clip that shows this interplay between the characters?
Or, please, if you have better characters and scenes she could use, we'd appreciate it.

I need help understanding how my hyper-smart geek husband's brain works. I want to give him the understanding he craves but am having a hard time inhabiting his plane. [more inside]

I stay calm and collected when people are getting angry and yelling at me. I have been told that this is an "infuriating" trait. What to do? [more inside]
