ABSTRACT
The main objective of this study was to assess the efficiency of a rational emotive and behavioral program for children concerning the reduction of irrational beliefs, inferential beliefs, dysfunctional emotions and behaviors. The second objective was to investigate the mediation effect of changes in irrational beliefs on inferences, emotions and behaviors modification. Results showed that rational emotive behavioral education was efficient in decreasing irrational beliefs in children, the main effect ranging from low to high. Significant differences were not obtained for locus of control internalization. Academic behaviors were modified moderately by the intervention. The results support the mediation effect of irrational beliefs in the modification of behavioral and emotional consequences.
