Among many achievements, Mr. Garcia has an extensive and diverse background in the field of human behavior. He holds both an undergraduate and graduate degree from New York University. His post graduate work was conducted at the Institute for Advanced Study in Rational Emotive Therapy, where Mr. Garcia worked extensively with Dr. Albert Ellis, founder of REBT, and on whose work SMART is founded. Upon completion of his four year internship, he became a Fellow of the Institute and was appointed Co-Director of Clinical Training there, a position he held for five years until his move to Atlanta, GA, where he currently resides.
Related to our upcoming workshop session, Mr. Garcia developed and appeared in a five hour TV presentation for WPBS entitled Developing Emotional Muscle, and he writes a weekly column for the Buckhead Atlanta newspaper, “On Developing Emotional Muscle.” Ed Garcia, along with Dr. Bill Knaus and Ron Parker, co-hosted SMART Recovery’s extremely successful 6-week “Job Search Support Group” in the Winter of 2010. He presented The Anatomy of Emotions: An Introduction, the first in the series to a full house in April 2011.
