Behavioural therapy consists of a set of clinical procedures that rely on the experimental findings of psychological research. This therapy is based on principles of learning, and these are systematically applied in treatment. The treatment goals of this therapy are specific and measurable, and focus on the client’s current problems. The therapy helps people change maladaptive behaviors into adaptive behaviors. The therapy is largely educational and teaches clients the skills of self-management. See the section on Behavioral Psychology for more information.
