Behavioral therapy is an action – oriented psychotherapy that helps individuals achieve their personal and professional objectives by identifying the destructive or undesirable behaviors and modifying or changing them with the more positive, desirable and productive behaviors.
Behavior therapy is based on the idea that all behaviors whether adaptive or maladaptive are learned. Therefore, the unwanted behaviors can be modified, relearn or changed. There are a variety of techniques used in behavior therapy to bring about a change in behavior.
It is useful for a range of psychological and behavioral problems and conditions across all age groups.
