    I have a question. What are the differences between Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy? It is my understanding that both are compatible with, and derived from Stoicism.

    The stoic philosophy has kept the chatter in my head to minimum it’s become a default position to fall back to when negative thoughts show up l find myself reading anything on the topic
