Behavioral Therapist Certifications & Training Courses

Behavioral therapy is a treatment that uses techniques to change how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. It is often used to treat various mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, and addiction.

Behavioral therapy is based on the idea that people are responsible for their behavior. This means people can change their behavior by changing how they think about and respond to situations.

The main technique of behavioral therapy is called cognitive therapy. Cognitive therapy involves helping people change the way they think about their problems. This can involve teaching them new ways of thinking about their problems and how they relate to the world around them. Another main technique of behavioral therapy is called behavioral activation. Behavioral activation involves helping people find and use positive behaviors to replace negative ones. This can be done through training or advice.

Behavioral therapy is usually effective in treating mental health problems. However, starting or keep using the therapy is not always easy. Therefore, it is important to seek out a therapist experienced in using behavioral therapy.
