Website review: ABC Counselling

Fri 14 Jun 2013, 6:11 pm

Good evening All,

It occurs to me that reviews of  websites fit nicely into this category of book and media reviews.  I just became aware of Jim Byrne's  ABC-Counseling,
http://www.abc-counselling.com/  as a result of the discussion of his article Dr. Ellis, a wounded psychotherapist

 Dr Jim Byrne, was originally very influenced by the thinking and theories of Dr Albert Ellis, sets out to explore the childhood of Albert Ellis, to see how this skewed the development of Ellis's notion of rationality, and his resistance to the idea of human emotional needs.which

which we present and discuss in a post elsewhere on this blog, which you can read here

After that long-winded introduction let me say that

I don't have time at the moment to write a review that does justice to the resource that Jim has put together, nor am I in a position yet to comment on the quality of the material offered.  However, clearly Jim has done a monumental job of assembling and offering REBT-CBT resources, including face-to-face, e-mail and telephone counseling.

Jim has developed his own "school" of CBT which he calls "CENT Cognitive Emotive Narrative Therapy" which you can read about here =>  CENT  I have not read it thoroughly, but it seems to be an approach that places much more emphasis on developmental psychology and the important, formative nature of early childhood experiences; something that REBT-CBT is typically  not particularly interested in.

You can even earn a diploma in CENT and become a charter member of the Institute for Cognitive Emotive Narrative Therapy (CM-I-CENT)

Here is the menu on the home page of the website. It just goes on-an-on.  Would appreciate anyone who has the time and the inclination to spend some time there and add to this "review."
