The process of REBT across multiple sessions, including progress monitoring, use of homework, relapse prevention, and preparation for the termination will be addressed. Having developed a strong foundation in the prevention, and preparation for termination will be addressed. Having developed a strong foundation in the premise of REBT in the Primary Certificate Program, the applications of the theory to various clinical problems, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, anger and ADHD are addressed. Participants will learn the various irrational beliefs and special considerations when working with each of these clinical problems, as well as various homework assignments to negotiate with clients.

Participants will receive twelve hours of small group peer counseling practicing their skills using real problems with a certified REBT supervisor who provides in vivo supervision.
