REBT

Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, as propounded by Dr Albert Ellis, is the earliest cognitive based psychotherapy and one of the most widely practised therapies all over the globe today. Its success lies in the fact that clients get better, faster, requiring fewer sessions than other therapies. REBT can be applied for most mental health issues and disorders. REBT works equally well with children & adolescents, as it does with adults.

It is an evidence based psychotherapy, which looks at altering ‘Unhealthy ‘ Negative Emotions, by disputing the individual’s Irrational Beliefs. Thereby provides a Rational Belief system, to change not just disturbing emotions but also one’s unhealthy perspective self, others and life. REBT comes under the umbrella of Cognitive Behaviour Therapies and has been found to be extremely effective, as it focuses on changing core beliefs, that are the root of most problems. REBT is today the first line of treatment for various mental disorders, like depression and anxiety.

REBT workshops offered by SELF ALIGN, are designed specifically for mental health and helping professionals, and in line with AEI’s  (Albert Ellis Institute) training methodology.

Gauri is an Associate Fellow & Training Faculty Level 2, trained and certified by the Albert Ellis Institute. Self Align has also been an Affiliated Training Center (ATC), of the Albert Ellis Institute (AEI) for several years. AEI has hereon globally discontinued its ATCs (from 2022).

CBT

Dr Aaron Tim Beck introduced Cognitive Therapy (CT), which later became a part of a larger group of cognitive behavioural therapies (CBT). Along with REBT its predecessor, it established the second wave of cognitive behavioural therapy – therapy, which emphasised cognitive factors. However, with Dr Beck calling it Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, it is more commonly referred too as CBT rather than CT.

It focuses on examining cognitive distortions and automatic thoughts, to change behaviours, and improve emotional regulation, while teaching personal coping strategies, to solve current problems. Like REBT, it is the first line of therapeutic treatment for depression and anxiety disorders.

DBT

Dialectic Behaviour Therapy, expounded by Dr Marsha Linehan, in the 1980s constitutes the third wave of CBT, as it blends theoretical and technical foundations from both, behaviour as well as cognitive therapies.

Dr Linehan began with efforts to treat personality disorders, interpersonal conflicts and Suicidality. There is evidence that DBT is very effective in treating people with personality disorders, PTSD, addictions, eating disorders, depression, and suicidal ideation. There are four core skill sets – Mindfulness, being able to non-judgmentally observe yourself and your surroundings, is at the core of DBT.

ACT

Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), another CBTs third wave, is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy stemming from behaviour and cognitive therapy.

Founded by Steven Hayes in early 1980s, ACT propounds acceptance of disturbing emotions, thoughts, etc., while simultaneously committing to make necessary behavioural changes, in order to live a rich and meaningful life, based on one’s values. It teaches those struggling with their inner emotions, to move on with their lives, regardless of their internal / external issues.

ACT has been used effectively to help treat workplace stress, test anxiety, social anxiety disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis. It has also been used to help treat medical conditions such as chronic pain, substance abuse, and diabetes.

SST

Single Session Therapy (SST) is a service delivery model, which can be adapted not only to several settings but also various other therapies. In the late 1980s, Michael Hoyt, Moshe Talmon and Robert Rosenbaum, worked on the first prospective SST research project, known as the Kaiser Permanente Project: findings included that the maximum number of sessions clients have, is “1”; and 70-80% of the patients who have a single session, are satisfied with just that one.

SST is referred to as a process where therapist and client together organize one complete session, approaching it as may be the last. However, more help is available if needed. It’s an approach that works with individuals and families, as well as all mental health issues.

PCT

Person Centered Therapy, also known as Client Centered Therapy and Rogerian Therapy, is a form of Talk therapy developed by psychologist Carl Rogers, in the 1940s, which became one of the major models of psychotherapy practiced worldwide.

Based upon the underlying belief that each person has both, the ability and desire to reach their potential, through personal growth and change, through a an understanding of their self, attitudes and behaviours. This inherent inclination is called the self-actualizing tendency. The interactions between the therapist and client facilitate this change, based on a nondirective, empathic approach that empowers and motivates the client in the therapeutic process.

SFBT

Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) is a strength-based approach to psychotherapy based on solution-building rather than problem-solving. Unlike other forms of psychotherapy that focus on present problems and past causes, SFBT concentrates on how your current circumstances and future hopes.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), also called Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) was developed by Steve de Shazer (1940-2005), and Insoo Kim Berg (1934-2007) in collaboration with their colleagues in the late 1970s. It is a short- term, goal-focused, therapeutic approach, focusing on solutions, rather than on the client’s problems.

It incorporates positive psychology principles and practices, to help clients find solutions sustaining desired behavioural change, rather than focusing on problems.
