From Kasturba Gandhi Memorial De-addiction and Rehabilitation Research Centre, Coimbatore, one hundred and two children of alcoholics were screened for Inferiority, Behaviour Problems and Adjustment. Eighty-seven children having moderate and high level of inferiority, increased behaviour problems and poor adjustment were selected for the study. The age range of the sample was 13-20 years. Case Study Schedule (2011), Inferiority Questionnaire (Pati, 1976), Behavioural checklist (2011), Bell's Adjustment Inventory (Bell, 1934) were used to collect the data from the subjects. "Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT)" was given all the subjects for 8 consecutive days. Subjects were re-assessed using the same tools with Case Study Reassessment Schedule(2011), after the administration of the REBT. The results indicated a significant reduction in their mean Inferiority, behaviour problems and a significant increase in Home, Social and Emotional adjustments, which could be attributed to the efficacy of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy.
