We’re all here, everyone came back after yesterday 😉 India’s doing a presentation about The Comfort Monster.
Presentation about Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). India’s asking clients their worst fears.
India is teaching us how to work out our core fear which lies beneath our ocd spikes.
India asked group if they’d find it easier to carry out yesterdays exposure tasks today, and they all said yes!
Core beliefs – we all hold different sets of beliefs.
Back from break. We are learning about the REBT Theory: ABC model. ABC model is based on our belief system.
Finding out clients Critical A and irrational belief, and then disputing the irrational belief.
Each client has written down their longterm goals, which include being in a happy relationship, become a parent, and work with animals.
This part of the course, working through ABC model based on clients core beliefs/ocd worries, is always emotional. But it is key.
Ex intensive client Rob is here giving an inspirational talk about his therapy journey. Rob is managing his OCD really well now.
Rob has had therapy from India here at the ocdcentre. He has learnt therapeutic skills for life.
Rob’s speech is truly inspiring. He explained his OCD spikes and how he overcame them. Gives current clients hope. Thanks Rob!
group is emotional after Robs speech. It’s really inspiring 2 see a person like Rob who has overcome his ocd & lives a productive life.
But Rob and India stress that there’s no quick fix, its a long and difficult journey and takes hard work. the journey begins here.
