Many clients come to therapy because they are suffering in an unfulfilling relationship. Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy was one of the first therapeutic approaches applied in couples therapy. This workshop will help clinicians identify the emotional and behavioral blocks to achieving successful relationships. The cognitive variables that often lead to relationship disturbance will be highlighted and strategies to overcome them will be addressed. There will be a discussion of some of the common challenges for clinicians working with couples, including how to structure the therapy session, balancing and addressing the needs of both partners, and modeling more effective communication styles. The importance of teaching clients Unconditional Other Acceptance of their partner will be addressed.
This workshop will review what we know about anger and the implication of this knowledge for identifying anger disorders, and assessing and treating anger problems. It will propose a model of anger as a clinical problem. Existing measures of anger and aggression will be examined. The workshop will also focus on how anger and related concepts appear in DSM-5 and ICD-10. The research literature on anger interventions will be presented and the implementation of interventions for individual, couples, and group therapy will be presented. Case examples will be provided.
Increasing motivation to change is a key skill all therapists must practice in their offices on a daily basis. Many clients are only half motivated to change. They want to change but they also want to go on doing what they are doing, for example, engaging in addictive behaviors, depressing themselves, and procrastinating. This workshop will focus on a variety of MI techniques designed to motivate clients to make important changes in their lives.
In this interactive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of REBTs theory of emotional and behavioral disturbance. Techniques for identifying and restructuring irrational beliefs will be taught, as well as generating homework assignments to reinforce session content. Strategies for motivating clients to agree on the goals and tasks of therapy will also be discussed. A live demonstration with a volunteer will bring the theory and its applications to light.
