Steve Johnson Ph.D. Vice President, Albert Ellis board of trustees

Shishir Palsapure MD (Hom), MSc (Psy), Director Morphic Minds, an Affiliated training center of Albert Ellis Institute

Participants will learn to: 

  • Apply effective techniques for working with resistant clients
  • Describe RE & CBT’s theory of personality disorders
  • Apply effective techniques for working with eating disorder clients
  • Demonstrate intervention skills for clients with addictions


Pre-requisite: Primary and Advanced Certificate in RE & CBT; Five 20 minute recordings supervised by a Certified REBT supervisor prior to the 4-day practicum (Supervisor must inform Dr. Kristene Doyle at the Albert Ellis Institute prior to registering for the practicum that participant is eligible). All candidates must be practicing clinically during the duration (pre and post 4-day practicum) of the Associate Fellowship training program.

During the Practicum: Participants must bring 10 full-length (45 minutes) recordings to the practicum for supervision.

Following the Practicum: In the year following, participants must have 20 recordings (ten 45 minute and ten 20 minute recordings) supervised by at least three different certified supervisors. Participants should not submit all 20 recordings at one time. The idea is to receive supervisory feedback and build upon that feedback.

When all 20 recordings are completed, participants submit their 21st "Golden” recording, $250.00 US, and their application for the associate fellowship certificate to Dr. Kristene Doyle for review by a member of the International Training Standards and Policy Review Committee.


Matriculants who successfully complete all program requirements will be eligible for Associate Fellowship membership in the Institute. Associate Fellows may also be invited to attend the Supervisory training.  


Primary and Advanced Certificate in RE & CBT, and 5 supervised therapy recordings.

REQUIRED READINGS: These are essential readings, and not just recommended readings.
