Dr. Maxie C. Maultsby, Jr.
For 40 years Dr. Maultsby did
self-help research and prescribed clinically proven
therapeutic, emotional self-help methods. In
addition, he perfected the short-term, comprehensive
method of psychotherapy called Rational Behavior
Therapy (RBT). His book by the same name is
considered a classic in short term psychotherapy
that produces long term results. Dr. Maultsby has
also written several books on healthy, emotional and
behavioral self-management. These books have been
translated into several languages and are used both
by mental health professionals and normal, but
unhappy people, who want to manage their emotions
and behavioral habits more successfully. High school
and college educators and counselors use Dr.
Maultsby's books in class-rooms, churches,
corporations, as well as in alcohol and other
substance abuse rehabilitation centers and even in
legal offender programs for improving personal and
inter-personal emotional and behavioral habits.
Dr. Maultsby has had a distinguished career in
Academic Psychiatry. He was a full professor
of psychiatry at four American Schools of Medicine.
In 1977 he was elected a Fellow of the American
Psychiatric Association and 2000 elected a Life
Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association in
recognition for his significant contributions to
Psychiatry. From 1989 until 1995 he was the
Chairman of Psychiatry at the College of Medicine at
Howard University in Washington DC, USA. Now
he is one of its active Emeritus Professors.
