REBT is the pioneering form of cognitive behavior therapy developed by Dr. Albert Ellis in 1955. REBT is an action-oriented approach to managing cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disturbances.
According to REBT, it is largely our thinking about events that leads to emotional and behavioral upset. With an emphasis on the present, individuals are taught how to examine and challenge their unhelpful thinking which creates unhealthy emotions and self-defeating/self-sabotaging behaviors.
The course covers basic tenets of REBT, with emphasis on emotional regulation, self-acceptance, assertive communication, decision making and counselling techniques. With emphasis on participative exercise, practical use of REBT in counseling set-ups is demonstrated.
