UK Centre for Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, London & Edinburgh

The Centre was set up in the early 1990s and it ran REBT courses in association with the Centre for Stress Management. In 2014 courses are being run in London, England and Edinburgh, Scotland.

We have revised and updated the course programme to make it more accessable to health professionals wishing to undertake Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy Continuing Professional Development (CPD) at introductory and intermediate levels. The basic programmes are outlined below:
