REBT Resource Centre [India]

This REBT Resource Centre [India] is the first of its kind endeavour to bring psychology close to as many students as possible both at the under graduate and post graduate levels for an exclusive access to REBT material including original books of Dr. Albert Ellis. People falling in this eligibility criterion are welcome to join as members of this Resource facility for educational purposes through registration.

In her practice of psychotherapy, Rajita Ramachandram found that there are few competent psychotherapists in India, specifically in Mumbai, from her own experience, who practice REBT in efficient ways and are willing to teach genuine learners. Furthermore, not everyone can afford to visit the Albert Ellis Institute in the United States for professional training in this form of psychotherapy. Many again perhaps cannot afford to buy his books by shipping them from the United States. Not suggesting whatsoever that this educational venture is a substitution for such training, however this reality makes the current system of professional training in India sufferable and in an effort to help professional education grow, Rajita Ramachandram has started this venture of opening a Resource Centre in India for REBT material from her own personal collection.

The catalogue of books at this facility Centre has a wide range of topics and anyone seeking professional training can benefit from Dr. Albert Ellis' contribution to psychology. The minimum qualification for eligibility for membership to this REBT Resource Centre [India] is under-graduation in psychology. Admission is taken on show of educational proof and college ID card if applicable, on prior appointment only. This Resource Centre is open for access only on Mondays between 2:00 to 3:00 pm IST. This reading service is made available for all students and/or professionals of psychology only.

The basic and advanced level programmes on 'Applications of REBT' aim at helping a professional understand the theory and application of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and is a pure educational initiative. It does not claim to train professionals to become "REBTists" in any way, since such training will require accreditation and supervision examination clearance from the Ellis Institute, New York. Infact, any psychological body that claims to teach you to be an "REBT therapist" without having cleared such examinations might be doing harm to you. So beware!
