Rational Emotive Behaviour Education/Counselling (REBE/REBC) teaches clients and school students about the ABC Theory of Emotional Disturbance created by Albert Ellis in the 1950's. It is a philosophy based counselling model which reflects the work of the Stoics like Epictetus who in 100 AD observed that events and other people don't drive the emotions and behaviours we expereince but rather it is our interpretation of those events.
In this workshop we consider the bullying context through the lens of the ABC model. How do we explain the behaviours of the bully? How can we shift a victim mentally to a more robust and assertive one? Can we psychological immunise people so that they do not become the object of the bully? How? And what of the bystander? How can REBE/REBC support her?
These and other issues will be covered in this 1 hour workshop.
This is the 8th of a series of 12 workshops which consider ways in which Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) principles are used in the educational and counselling contexts.
Each workshop attracts 3 hours professional learning credit.
