Abstract: This workshop provides an overview of the theory and primary purpose of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and key considerations for applying the Situational A-B-C-E Model of REBT. This model has been highly effective in helping individuals become less disturbed emotionally, behaviorally and cognitively and more functional by changing the way they think about self, others and the world. This presentation describes two human tendencies that lead to emotional disturbance and dysfunctional behavior: 1. The tendency to irrationally transform a desire into a demand; 2. The power of choice and the ability to dispute and change irrational thinking to rational thinking. This session discusses unhealthy negative emotions (UNEs) and healthy negative emotions (HNEs) as well as illustrating each phase of the Situation A-B-C-D-E Model of REBT in renewing the mind.
