I can agree with Ellis’s assumption on REBT on the basis for emotional disturbance lays in irrational beliefs and thinking. I think I can only agree partially with Ellis on the notion that events themselves do not cause emotional and behavioral problems. I do agree that our cognitive evaluation of events can lead to emotional disturbance. Traumatic events though such as plane or car crashes, rape, being attacked or robbed are events that cannot be controlled and our cognitive evaluation can be compromised and possibly unable to fully comprehend these events in times of great stress or trauma. I can agree that our cognitions and behaviors create a “cause-and-effect” relationship (Corey, 2017, p. 271) Just this weekend in church the sermon was aimed at the story we attach to our wounds in life and how that affects our outlook on life. I do believe that we do present ourselves with the choice to respond to different events, but that is not the full reason as to why one can find themselves in emotional disturbance. 

CB is also an introspective therapy that is aimed at catching those distorted thoughts to restructure those thoughts, to “identify dysfunctional thinking, then weigh evidence for or against that thought.”(Corey, 2017, p. 285) I can accept the notion that cognitive therapists should assist clients to almost a full extent. I do not agree with the specified questions in collaborative empiricism (Corey, 2017, p. 285) which can leave room for therapists to bring the patients to biased conclusions about their thoughts. There should be assisting in the restructuring and examination of distorted beliefs to avoid further distorted beliefs but the clients need to bring themselves to those conclusions, not have them be given to them, but collarborated on instead.
