Workshop: The Management and Expression of Anger Using SPACE: A Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavioural Approach.

Workshop Facilitator: Nick Edgerton MSc CPsychol MAREBT (Accred) HCPC Reg

Date: 29th November, 2022

Time: 10.00 to 13.00 GMT

The Workshop will explore two forms of Anger using the SPACE Model as a conceptual framework. The identification, monitoring, regulation, and expression of Anger will also be considered. ‘SPACE’, is a comprehensive psychological model that can be used within rational emotive and cognitive behavioural therapy, coaching and stress management to aid assessment, explain the cognitive model to the client, and assist in the development of a therapeutic, coaching or training programme. The SPACE model was developed in 2002 and portrays the interactions involved in psychological processes in a manner that is more graphical than the two or five column worksheets that are commonly used in rational emotive and cognitive behavioural approaches. It is also an easy to remember acronym: Social context, Physiology, Action, Cognition, Emotion.
