Prerequisite: Primary and Advanced Certificate in REBT. All candidates must be practicing clinically during the duration (pre and post 4-day practicum) of the Associate Fellowship Certificate Program.
During the Practicum: Participants must be prepared to present 5 full-length (45 minutes) recordings for supervision of their REBT skills.
Following the Practicum: In the year following, participants must have 10 full-length (45-minute) recordings supervised by at least three different REBT Core Faculty Trainers. Participants should not submit all 10 recordings at one time. The goal is to receive supervisory feedback and build upon that feedback.
When all 10 recordings are completed, participants submit a full-length (45-minute session) "Golden” recording, $250.00 US, and their application for the Associate Fellowship Certificate to Dr. Kristene Doyle (firstname.lastname@example.org) for review by a member of the International Training Standards and Policy Review Committee.
Matriculants who successfully complete all program requirements will be eligible for Associate Fellowship membership of the Albert Ellis Institute.
Open to licensed or license-eligible psychologists and social workers, physicians, nurses, clergy, and holders of master’s degrees treating clients in supervised settings.
