The REBT (rational emotive behavior therapy) Primary Practicum is the first step to learn REBT. “Studi Cognitivi” is glad to have the opportunity to offer the same Primary Practicum as is presented at the Albert Ellis Institute (AEI) of New York.
The class section is lead by the most internationally important and certificated REBT therapists and supervisors such as Doctor Kristene Doyle, Director of AEI, and Professor Raymond DiGiuseppe, Director of Professional Education of AEI and professor of Psychology at the St. John University of New York.
The Primary is an intense three day practicum that includes frontal lessons and practical sessions in which participants can practice peer-counselling supervised by senior teachers. Each group is composed of 8 participants and supervised by one teacher for the whole afternoon.
During the program participants will learn the REBT theory of emotional disturbance and change by leading REBT practitioners. Participants will have the opportunity to practice their REBT skills in small group supervision and receive immediate feedback from an experienced REBT supervisor.
It is possible to follow both the Primary and Advanced Practicums in Milan in June 2016, one after the other. Should you not pass the final exam of the Primary Practicum, the registration fee for the Advanced will be reimbursed.
Open to psychologists, psychiatrists psychotherapists and graduate students. Proof of degree must accompany the registration form
Frontal lectures and group practice sessions are offered in English. Consecutive translation into Italian will be available where necessary.

- Understand and apply the REBT theory of emotional disturbance and change;
