About LBT

Logic-Based Therapy, founded by Elliot D. Cohen, is a leading modality of philosophical practice.  LBT is offspring to Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) developed by psychologist Albert Ellis in the 1950’s. Dr. Ellis’ vision had been to cultivate a form of therapy enlightened by philosophy and logic. The Institute, founded in 1985, seeks to carry on this philosophical tradition in the form of LBT.
