  • Key elements of REBT theory.

  • Nature of irrational thinking and alternatives.
  • Main philosophical foundations.
  • Intervention principles (Defining specific problems in REBT terms).
  • The process of therapy.

Method: Lectures and video demonstrations showing REBT in action, group discussions and case presentations by participants. No role-playing is used. Participants will carry out a 'shame attack' (to be completed and submitted in writing), and will make a 10-minute essay presentation (topic to be discussed with the trainer). Submission of one recorded session demonstrating the use of REBT accompanied by a transcript and an analysis/formulation of the case in REBT terms is required for final assessment. Homework assignments are given and extra reading is recommended.

  • Preference is given to those in the helping profession e.g. psychiatrists, doctors, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, teachers, nurses, trainers etc.
  • Some experience in using basic counselling skills is required, as these will not be taught in the course (participants need to already feel comfortable in counselling situations with clients).
  • Participants also require an understanding of ethical issues in working with people in a helping role, especially confidentiality, respect for the client and their culture, and maintenance of appropriate boundaries.
  • Participants should be open to learning and eager to enrich the quality of the services they are rendering at present.
  • Participants should be willing to practice as counsellors in front of the group and receive feedback. In order to make this practice real and profitable, participants have to be real clients to one another.
