The Advanced Certificate is the second level of training in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. During these intense four days, participants learn strategies to achieve cognitive change through a variety of styles of restructuring irrational beliefs. The process of REBT across multiple sessions, including progress monitoring, the use of homework, relapse 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. A lecture is devoted to teaching clients the concepts of Unconditional Self, Other, and Life Acceptance to address emotional and behavioral disturbance. 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.


Open to psychologists, counselors, social workers, physicians, nurses, and graduate students. The minimum qualification for certificate candidacy is a master’s degree in psychology or counseling, M.S.W., M.D., or R.N. Other helping professionals (e.g., alcoholism counselors) may be eligible to participate in the full Practicum but will receive a Paraprofessional Certificate. Proof of degree or license must accompany the registration form. Participants must have the Primary Certificate to qualify.


Participants will:

  • Apply numerous debates of irrational beliefs and demonstrate the construction of new rational beliefs.
  • Design and implement change strategies for the beginning, middle, and end stages of therapy.
  • Develop strategies for working with patients with anxiety, depression, anger, eating disorders, and ADHD.
  • Develop between-session homework activities for patients to achieve their goals.
