Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (CBT) are a group of therapies that generally focus on the construction and re-construction of people's thinking, emotions and behaviors.
Behavior Therapy focuses on modifying overt behavior and helping clients to achieve goals. This approach is built on the principles of learning theory including operant and respondent conditioning, which makes up the area of applied behavior analysis or behavior modification.
This approach includes:
♦ Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
♦ Analytic Psychotherapy
♦ Dialectical behavior therapy
Sometimes it is integrated with cognitive therapy to make cognitive behavior therapy.
