Summary: The present study explores a potential empirical relationship between Ellis’ rational-emotive behavior therapy (REBT) and Beck’s cognitive therapy (CT), two of the most prominent models in the field of cognitive psychotherapy. Although this field uses the term “cognitive” in a way that is associated with affection, physiology, and behavior (Dobson, 1986), it maintains that the essence of emotional disturbance is caused by the cognitive process of an individual. This research study gave previously adapted Spanish versions of the Attitudes and Beliefs Inventory or ABI, and the Beck Depression Inventory- Second Edition (BDI-II) to a sample of 200 students from the University of Costa Rica. Spearman’s rho correlation coefficients were calculated, and their results were analyzed in terms of previously proposed theoretical relationships between the two models.
