Dear Meetup members, I was asked to keep this member's identity anonymous, but the member shared some ideas which will be addressed at our next meetup.
The next meetup will be about Relationships in Conflict & how to use REBT and CBT in the process of working through your relational challenges in non-abusive relationships.
(Abusive relationships fall into another category altogether.)
Some of the issues that we will cover:
==> Irrational Beliefs that get people into trouble in their relationships with others
==> How to address these IB's
==> How to monitor yourself
==> Do other people in your life need to monitor their IB's too?
==> Guidelines for resolving your conflicts from a problem-solving perspective
==> What does a relatively functional adult relationship (with what Ellis would term "fallible f'd up human beings") look like?
==> Remember that Ellis believed in a nonutopian view--so most people are not rational at least some of the time & they are inherently imperfect most of the time.
That being said, self and other acceptance will probably be discussed as well. Be sure to RSVP right away, as we have been having people on the waiting list for the last few meetings & I want to make sure you can come.
Thanks & have a great day!
