Behavioral therapy is a focused, action-oriented approach to mental health treatment.
According to behavioral theory, certain behaviors develop from things you learned in your past. Some of these behaviors might affect your life negatively or cause distress.
Behavioral therapy can help you change your behavioral responses.
In behavioral therapy, you won’t spend much time talking about unconscious reasons for your behavior or working through emotional difficulties.
Instead, you’ll focus on ways to change behavioral reactions and patterns that cause distress.
