The article discusses a mental health curriculum intended to provide rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) for students with emotional and behavioral problems. The authors suggest school disciplinary actions prevent students with behavioral problems from developing coping skills and inhibit their academic achievement. REBT is designed to help patient control their emotions and behavior by changing their rational beliefs. The authors suggest school curricula should be integrated with REBT by emphasizing problem solving and describe the structure of REBT sessions in which students interact through discussion and learn cognitive skills.
