Level 2

Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) is an evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy used to solve anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma and much more. This course will give you everything you need to understand what REBT is and how to use it.

REBT uses the cognitive model to help us understand ourselves and teaches us that our experiences are filtered through our beliefs: therefore, by challenging our irrational beliefs and replacing them with more effective beliefs, we can respond to life in a healthier and more functional way.

In the lessons, we will cover:

Once we have covered the theory, techniques and practice of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, we will then look at how to apply it to anxiety, phobias and social phobia, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as a series of case studies including problems at work and relationship issues.

We will learn through videos, readings, handouts, quizzes and practical exercises so whatever your learning style, there will be something in this course for you.
