Abstract or description

Research applying Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) with athletes is sparse and
findings are equivocal. REBT can be applied using education workshops, but previous studies in
sport do not assess changes in irrational beliefs following REBT. This paper reports the effects of
a single REBT education workshop on irrational beliefs in elite soccer academy athletes from
pretest to posttest. The delivery of the REBT workshop is reported in detail. Statistical analyses
indicate temporary reductions in irrational beliefs following the workshop. Results are discussed
with reference to mechanisms of change, study limitations, workshop reflections, and
recommendations for developing REBT workshops.
