Chicago Institute for REBT offers FREE training for teachers and students

The Chicago Institute for REBT is an affiliated training center to the Albert Ellis Institute for REBT in New York city. It recently became a 501(3)(C) with the mission of offering psycho-educational presentations and workshops for students, teachers, parents, at-risk youth and adults, law enforcement, businesses, groups and communities.

REBT stands for Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, the work of the late world renowned psychologist Dr. Albert Ellis. REBE or Rational Emotive Behavioral Education is the classroom version of REBT, and one of the original and most effective forms of Social Emotional Learning.
Our staff includes an REBT therapist who was a protégé of Albert Ellis, and taught REBE to educators in the Chicagoland area for over 30 years, and two high school teachers with over 60 years experience combined, who are certified in REBE and taught it to their fellow staff and students. All three have taught REBE-based graduate classes for teachers through St. Xavier University in the Chicago area.
We offer FREE grant and donation funded training for teachers and students. My personal version of REBE is called The Mental and Emotional Tool Kit for Life. I taught it to my health education students for good mental health and to prevent drug abuse, suicide and unplanned pregnancies.
It’s the basis of the highly effective “Tool Time” approach for at-risk students.
The training for teachers is called Teacher ESP, or Effectiveness and Stress Prevention.
The application of REBE to the problem of bullying is called Mental and Emotional Karate.
Finally, the “tool kit” training for police officers is called COP or Cognitive Overreaction Prevention. Educators can earn Primary and Secondary certification.
If you’re planning training for staff, please consider our programs.
