About Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Schema Therapy: 

The Albert Ellis Institute:  www.rebt.org.  Features a large online bookstore.

http://rebtnetwork.org/  This site is simply one of the best resources for background information on REBT, its history, and some of its basic philosophy and goals.  Please look for the  REBT SELF-HELP FORM link, into which you can type your own personal responses and share them with your therapist.

The Cognitive Therapy Center of New York:  www.schematherapy.com.

This is Dr. Jefrey Young’s unique and very user-friendly gold mine of information about cognitive therapy and schema therapy.  Schema therapy is a treatment program developed, in part, for the treatment of personality disorders.
