If behaviour is learnt, it can also be unlearned.
Behaviour therapy can be applied to a number of disorders that children suffer and in many cases is more effective that drug treatment for specific disorders as compared to others.
What is behavioural therapy?
Behavioural therapy is form of psychotherapy that helps change potentially self-destructive or unhealthy behaviours and modifies behaviour. This therapy functions on the idea that all behaviours are learned and that unhealthy behaviours can be changed. Thus, the focus of treatment is often on current problems and how to change current behavioural problems.
Who can benefit from behavioural therapy?
Behavioural therapy can benefit people with a wide range of behavioural problems like:
- general stress
- panic disorders
- eating disorders, bulimia
- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- bipolar disorder
- phobias, including social phobias
- obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- substance abuse
Children ages 3 to 12 will get most benefits from behavioral therapy. However, people of all ages can get effective behavioral therapy. Per example intimacy in couple’s relationships, forgiveness in couples or chronic pain are also factors for behavioral therapy.

Behaviour therapy is of four different methods 1. Applied behaviour analysis (ABA) 2. Teaching-family model (TFM) 3. Positive behaviour support (PBS) and 4. Cognitive behaviour therapy(CBT).
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy had a similar effect on managing depression as standard treatment with antidepressant drugs.
Applied behaviour analysis is based on modifying certain behaviours that are seen as being important socially or personally.
Social Skills Training involves skills to access reinforces and lessen life punishment.
Third generation behavior therapy has been called clinical behavior analysis because it represents a movement away from cognitive and back toward radical behaviorism.
