Passage of the Day: Behavioural Therapy: What is it?

“The work of behavior therapists, then, is to figure out which behaviors are causing problems in their clients’ lives, and then work to change them. Behavior therapy is therefore a form of psychotherapy that is based on a behaviorist approach. The focus of the treatment is to help clients replace negative behaviors such as anger and aggression toward others. With positive behaviors, including acceptance and the understanding that there is no good or bad. It’s about letting go of the negative in your life and embracing the positive. The most important thing in determining whether therapy is successful or not is whether the client does want to change his or her behavior. “
