This workshop will present cognitive experiential and behavioral techniques to help women and men in their intimate relationships. There will be a special emphasis on personal and work-related male/female relationships and 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 (2000) dimostra con due volontari. La prima volontaria è arrabbiata e intimidita dai suoi supervisori. Umorismo e immagini sono incorporati. La seconda volontaria sente il bisogno di controllare gli altri ed è arrabbiata quando non può. Ellis usa le immagini per correggere i modelli cognitivi e produrre un cambiamento emotivo.
