At one time or another, all clinicians have had to meet the challenge of dealing with an angry client. Skilled in empathy and active listening, we are sometimes at a loss when confronted with clients who have difficulty containing their rage. In this video with an actual client, you will learn an REBT approach to anger management. Students and interns will especially find this action-oriented approach useful when facing those clients who may only be in treatment for a few sessions. Melanie, an African-American woman with a history of drug addiction, comes to treatment as part of an anger management course. Her past angry outbursts have led her to violence and even incarceration. Dr. Janet Wolfe helps Melanie connect her irrational beliefs to their ineffectual, and sometimes violent, consequences. Using the ABCs of REBT helping the client understand how not only the activating event (A), but her beliefs (B) about that event trigger the emotional and behavioral consequences (C) Dr. Wolfe introduces a specific Anger Management Sequence, which she uses immediately during a role play in the session. Interspersed throughout this actual session is an informative discussion that elucidates Dr. Wolfe's rationale in utilizing classic REBT techniques. Although most people associate REBT with the confrontative and even cantankerous style of its founder, Albert Ellis, Dr. Wolfe shows how REBT principles can be practiced with a softer touch.
