The Basics of CBT & REBT
  • 1 day Mandatory workshop 9am to 5pm. Lunch included. 
  • This workshop is the foundation for all the Essential Workshops in the Counselling and Internal Balance & Wellbeing Series. 
  • Essential workshops are open to students, as well as to people with no clinical background.
  • These workshops may sound basic, but they actually cover very important psychological knowledge in great depth. 
  • For those who have never encountered CBT and REBT, your mind will open up to a whole new understanding of the way humans emotionally disturb themselves. The CBT model is recognized the world over, as one of the most effective available psychotherapies. 
  • For students who already know CBT, unless you have specialized in CBT, experience has shown that you will still need a refresher, plus you will be introduced to Albert Ellis’ REBT model, a great and very useful addition to Beckian CT.

Q&A
Objectives
& Directions
This workshop is designed to lay down strong foundations and to compare and contrast the two CBT models, Aaron Beck’s CT model and Albert Ellis’ REBT. REBT lays the foundations for learning to accept what you cannot change, without emotionally disturbing yourself. It tackles acceptance of the reality you find yourself in, of the emotions/thoughts/behaviours you express, and of yourself as a human being. It plays a big role in compassion training, which Beckian CBT does not. It is the model that has gone on to influence some of the most popular therapies around today, like ACT, DBT, Compassion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness.
Application
Prerequisite
Open to all. No prerequisite. This course is appropriate for those with no knowledge of cognitive behavioral therapies, a beginner level in cognitive behavioral therapies or an intermediate level in cognitive behavioral therapies. If you have completed a diploma or intensive training in CT/REBT you can be exempt, for all else it is mandatory in order to complete the other workshops.

Counseling Series Lebanon
Active Listening & Socratic Questioning in Counselling
  • 1 day workshop from 9am to 5pm. Lunch included. 
  • Active Listening & Socratic Questioning is an essential skill for all students in psychology, it is a fundamental part in counselling. You can’t go very far in the mental health profession without this skill.  
  • It seems such an easy skill to develop, yet it is what will give away a novice vs someone with years of practice. When you listen to a professional they make this skill seem so easy, yet it is a whole art. It can make or break a therapy. Done well, you don’t always need more to make a difference in someone’s life and help them to heal themselves.  
  • It is also a very good skill to have for anybody who has to work with patients, e.g. doctors and nurses and benefits professionals who work with the public, e.g. police, crisis hotlines, etc.  
  • An invaluable skill to have in your private life, as most of us have no idea how to truly listen to our kids or partner and totally miss the point the other is trying to get across.  
  • Learning to really listen and know what questions to ask, helps people to connect, to feel cared for and helps reduce stressful clashes.

Dealing with Stress
  • 1 day workshop 9am to 5pm. Lunch included. 
  • Many courses are offered on stress, but stress is complex.
  • A lot of workshops miss out on explaining the various components that go into this complexity. 
  • Learning CBT is actually one of the major tools to help deal with stress. But then you need to plug it into the big picture and learn to pull it all together. 
  • Everybody grapples with stress. There is no way out of this, especially in the modern world.The goal is not to rid yourself of stress. You probably couldn’t even if you tried. What you can do, is learn to manage yourself better, as part of self-care: to minimize daily chronic stress, acute stress, and burnout. 
  • In this workshop, you will learn how to properly define stress and shed light on some on the most common stress related triggers. 
  • You will learn about the biology of stress and some of the difficulties people experience due to stress, including somatizations and conversion disorder. 
  • You will develop a toolbox of resources you can use to help manage your own stress. 
  • Please come in with a mildly stressful problem in mind, that you can practice on.

Compassion Training
  • 1 day workshop from 9am to 5pm. Lunch included. 
  • Compassion is one of those big buzz words in psychology today, and for good reason as self- compassion will change your view of yourself and being a compassionate person will help change the world. 
  • Learning to be compassionate starts at home, by changing the way you judge yourself and the world around you. Each little individual change will eventually bring about big individual and collective change. 
  • Compassion can be taught in so many ways: mind, body and spirit. This workshop addresses compassion via working on the mind, the psyche, to bring about inner balance and wellbeing.

Assertiveness & Effective Communication in Relationships
  • 1 day workshop from 9am to 5pm. Lunch included. 
  • Once you’ve started to understand about yourself, you now need to move to better understanding the relationships you’re in and that surround you. 
  • The previous workshops have started to give you vocabulary that this workshop builds on. Without vocabulary, to name what is going on inside of you and express yourself, is impossible. 
  • Some are surprised by the style of expression they have. They think they are healthy but they are in fact maladaptive ways of expression. Others discover that they were healthy all along but that they are in relationships with a person expressing themselves in a maladaptive or even abusive way. 
  • This workshop is the beginning of learning how to detect and protect from abuse, of figuring out how better to express yourself, or why you are not being heard. 
  • This is a very important part of being a parent. A parent is constantly using language to educate and help their child. But is that language secretly toxic and actually doing more harm than you could have ever imagined? Find out…

Self-Confidence Development
  • 1 day workshop from 9am to 5pm. Lunch included. 
  • This is usually the position from which most workshops begin. However, you can’t aim to improve self-confidence without the previous workshops as a frame of reference. 
  • A lot of people don’t want to revisit childhood, understandably, it can be a difficult topic. Unfortunately, there is no way not to because of its impact on our self-confidence. You need to learn about how your childhood set you up to be timid and anxious, rather than the person brimming with confidence you’d prefer.
  • If you are a parent, you need to be aware of what can lead to poor confidence in your child. 
  • An in-depth understanding of emotional abuse. How do we violate our loved ones and how we have been violated by loved ones?

  • 2 day workshop, Friday 13th December & Saturday 14th December, from 9am to 4pm. Lunch included. 
  • Introduction to Trauma is part of the Core Workshops that all practitioners of mental health need to understand.
  • It caters mainly to students in psychology who wish to better understand PTSD and Complex PTSD.  
  • A must for anybody working in therapy or coaching. Perhaps you will be working with a victim of trauma in person, &/or you will need to fully understand trauma in order to know how to navigate them towards getting the proper help they need to heal.  
  • It is amazing to see that even seasoned psychotherapists and mental health facilities do not fully understand trauma and therefore get it so wrong whilst meaning well.  
  • This workshop contains quite a lot of necessary theory and a lot of basic neurobiology.  Nevertheless, it still offers open discussions and practical exercises designed to reinforce learning. 
  • Day 1 will be a review of what we currently know about trauma from the world of neuroscience.  
  • Day 2 will concentrate on treatment plans, including an introduction to Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing Therapy and other non-traditional exercises that move away from talk therapy.
