This workshop will present cognitive, experiential, and behavioral techniques for helping men and women to realize more of their human potential. There will be special emphasis on personal and work-related male/female relationships and on how to deal with negative reactions to "out of role'' behavior, such as women's assertiveness and men's expressions of intimacy. Live demonstrations will be offered.

Albert Ellis, PhD, was an American psychologist who in 1955 developed Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). He held M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in clinical psychology from Columbia University and American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). He also founded and was the President of the New York City-based Albert Ellis Institute for decades.
Based on a 1982 professional survey of US and Canadian psychologists, he was considered as the second most influential psychotherapist in history (Carl Rogers ranked first in the survey; Sigmund Freud was ranked third). Psychology Today noted, "No individual—not even Freud himself—has had a greater impact on modern psychotherapy."
