Teachers College Hosts Tribute to Albert Ellis

Sep 12, 2013
On September 25, 2013, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., the Teachers College will host a special event to honor the legacy of Albert Ellis in the Milbank Chapel of Columbia University.
This September marks the birth centennial of Albert Ellis.

After his time at Teachers College, Ellis went on to become the father of cognitive-behavioral therapy and founder of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), discovering that people’s beliefs strongly affect their emotional functioning. By the time he died at age 93, Ellis had become considered by many to be more influential than Freud.

On September 25, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., the Teachers College will host a special event to honor the legacy of Albert Ellis in the Milbank Chapel of Columbia University.

The evening will be a tribute to his impact in the field of psychology presented by Lisa Miller, Professor of Psychology and Education and Director of Clinical Psychology and his wife, Dr. Debbie Joffe Ellis, who worked alongside Ellis for many years.
