Using REBT to Effectively Cope Inside and Outside the Classroom







"Men are disturbed not by events, but by the views which they take of them." - Epictetus

Participants in this PLCohort will reflect on lectures, video demonstrations, and readings from a classic text by Dr. Albert Ellis, the founder of Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy. Participants will also complete three reaction papers over the course of six weeks giving them practice in applying the REBT model to their own lives. 

Professional Learning Outcomes (PLO):

In this PLCohort, participants will be able to

  • Understand the difference between unhealthy negative emotion and healthy negative emotion and be able to apply this concept to stressful life situations.
  • Apply the four categories of Irrational (Unhealthy) Beliefs (Rigid Attitudes) and their Healthy Alternative Beliefs (Flexible Attitudes) to stressful lie situations.
  • Apply the REBT model of disputation to facilitate the participant's development of an effective new philosophy and functional new behavior towards the stressful situation.
