Personal Development, Spiritual Growth

Behavior therapist/therapy

This school of therapy, developed in the United States by B.F. Skinner in the 1950’s, stresses that the only way to change one’s internal state is to change one’s environment and the reaction to it. Operant conditioning, which uses of consequences in order to effect or modify a certain behavior, is a key to behavior therapy. Other methods are systematic desensitization, used primarily in treatment of phobias and anxiety, in which the client is taught to relax and then, over time, exposed slowly and with support to the issue that plagues him/her. Other methods of behavior therapy are Pavlovian or respondent conditioning and exposure therapy.
