Discuss how the cognitive theorists (Kelly, Beck, and Ellis) might respond to this question from apotential client: "I have been a patient of Dr. Steve Smith, who is a psychoanalyst. He feels that I need3 years of therapy to explore my defense mechanisms (he said I need to regress back to my childhoodrepressions, whatever that means). I am feeling depressed and have even thought of committingsuicide. I feel that no matter what I do, I'm just a complete failure. Can you help me, or should I staywith Dr. Smith?"Kelly, Beck and Ellis all have slightly different views as cognitive theorists. All 3 would have taken aslightly different approach. Ellis would have recommended rational emotive therapy which is a mix ofcognitive and behavioral treatment. Ellis believed individuals have depression and anxiety due tonegative beliefs about themselves and would recommend discussing and breaking down the negativebeliefs (Burger, 2019).
