This is the first in a series of mini-workshops for both professionals and the general public, teaching, “How To Become Your Own Therapist.”
With classic self-help, problem-solving methods of Albert Ellis’s Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), psychologist and author, Emmett Velten, PhD, will teach participants how to understand the common problem of feeling partly stuck in the past. Something bad happened, or something good did not happen, and that “event” still seems to control your present-day emotions.
Participants will learn to use REBT’s A x B = C formula to do something constructive about the fact that current emotions have current causes.
According to Velten, his rapt audience will come away from this mini-workshop appreciating how MUSTurbation leads to self-abuse, awfulizing leads to more to awfulize about, discomfort dodging won’t get you out of Dodge, and pride goeth before a fall.
