He trained extensively in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) at the Institute of Rational Living with Albert Ellis.

Dr. Roffers was one of the first professionals to be trained in Advanced Integrative Therapy. He served as Director of Training under Dr. Asha Clinton and assisted her in developing the training program for AIT teachers throughout the United States. He continues an independent practice in Oakland, California combining Advanced Integrative Therapy and the Morphogenetic Field Technique.
