REBT/ counseling and therapy course in Mumbai by Swati Khanolkar

REBT (theory and applications) –The aim of this professional application based certificate course of 42 hrs is to gain in-depth understanding of principles of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy in theory and to get a thorough training in its practical application. Along with the main tenets of REBT, cognitive, emotive and behavioral techniques used in REBT are also covered. It takes a closer look at how REBT perceives and tackles emotional disturbances such as anxiety, anger, depression etc. and other common problem areas such as addictions, marital problems and behavioural problems in children thus aiming to prepare the participants to work with a wide variety of clients. High emphasis is given to identifying self-disturbing patterns of thoughts and beliefs through homework assignments and also practising being in the counselor’s seat.

Conviction that a particular therapy works comes only when you first personally experience its helping effects on yourself. That is exactly what this workshop offers: personal change through the course of professional gain.
