Cognitive-Behavior Approaches in therapy and counseling with Adults are effective in dealing with a wide range of psychological related difficulties (Dobson, 2009). Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy, the first Cognitive-Behavior Approach to psychological practice, founded in 1955 by psychologist and psychotherapist Dr. Albert Ellis, has been recognized internationally as the most innovative and effective form of Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for various psychological issues (David, Lynn, & Ellis, 2010; https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/jclp.22514).

The programs offered by the Hellenic Institute for RECBT follow the latest innovations and developments in the field. Their goal is to help professionals gain in-depth theoretical knowledge and practical experience in Rational-Emotive & Cognitive-Behavior Theory & Therapy when working with Adults and to improve their RECBT skills when interviewing, conducting assessments, applying intervention strategies, developing case formulations, as well as monitoring therapy progress and effectiveness of the interventions.
