Albert Ellis (September 27, 1913 July 24, 2007) was an American psychologist who in 1955 developed Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy.

He was considered by many to be the grandfather of cognitive-behavioral therapies and, based on a 1982 professional survey of U.S. and Canadian psychologists, one of the most influential psychotherapists in history (Carl Rogers placed first in the survey; Sigmund Freud placed third).[1] Ellis founded and was the president and president emeritus of the New York City-based Albert Ellis Institute.
