Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy can benefit people with a wide range of disorders. People most commonly seek behavioral therapy to treat:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • panic disorders
  • anger issues

It can also help treat conditions and disorders such as:

  • eating disorders
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • bipolar disorder
  • ADHD
  • phobias, including social phobias
  • obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • self-harm
  • substance abuse

There are a number of different types of behavioral therapy:


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy is extremely popular. It combines behavioral therapy with cognitive therapy. Treatment is centered on how someone’s thoughts and beliefs influence their actions and moods. It often focuses on a person’s current problems and how to solve them. The long-term goal is to change a person’s thinking and behavioral patterns to healthier ones.


System Desensitization

System desensitization relies heavily on classical conditioning. It’s often used to treat phobias. People are taught to replace a fear response to a phobia with relaxation responses. A person is first taught relaxation and breathing techniques. Once mastered, the therapist will slowly expose them to their fear in heightened doses while they practice these techniques.


Aversion Therapy

Aversion therapy is often used to treat problems such as substance abuse and alcoholism. It works by teaching people to associate a stimulus that’s desirable but unhealthy with an extremely unpleasant stimulus. The unpleasant stimulus may be something that causes discomfort. For example, a therapist may teach you to associate alcohol with an unpleasant memory.


Behavioral Therapy for Children

Applied behavior therapy and play therapy are both used for children. Treatment involves teaching children different methods of responding to situations more positively. A central part of this therapy is rewarding positive behavior and punishing negative behavior. Parents must help to reinforce this in the child’s day-to-day life. It may take children some time to trust their counselor. This is normal. They’ll eventually warm up to them if they feel they can express themselves without consequences. Children with autism and ADHD often benefit from behavioral therapy.


Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy

Cognitive behavioral play therapy is commonly used with children. By watching children play, therapists are able to gain insight into what a child is uncomfortable expressing or unable to express. Children may be able to choose their own toys and play freely. They might be asked to draw a picture or use toys to create scenes in a sandbox. Therapists may teach parents how to use play to improve communication with their children.

Is behavioral therapy effective?

Behavioral therapy has successfully been used to treat a large number of conditions. It’s considered to be extremely effective.

About 75 percent of people who enter cognitive behavioral therapy experience some benefits from treatment.

One study found that cognitive behavioral therapy is most effective when treating:

  • anxiety disorders
  • general stress
  • bulimia
  • anger control problems
  • somatoform disorders
  • depression
  • substance abuse

Studies have shown that play therapy is very effective in children ages 3 to 12. However, this therapy is increasingly being used in people of all ages.
