Behavior Therapy is a structured form of therapy that works to create objective and measurable changes in the patient’s daily life. The therapy works by employing a reward system for positive action.
Much of the healing work is done directly by the patient outside of the sessions. Behavior is focused on helping an individual understand how changing their behavior can lead to changes in how they are feeling. The goal of behavior therapy is usually focused on increasing the person’s engagement in positive or socially reinforcing activities.
Behavior therapy is a structured approach that carefully measures what the person is doing and then seeks to increase chances for positive experience.
