Behavior Therapy functions on the idea that all unfavorable behaviors can be changed as behavior is something that is observed and learned from our environment. By means of Applied Behavior Analysis the therapist understands how a behavior is influenced by the environment and how this can be changed if found to be undesired. Thus, in a behavioral therapy, unacceptable or destructive behaviors are eliminated and the desirable behaviors are rewarded.
The therapist would do a detailed psychological assessment to understand your child’s personality, emotions, thought-processes, logical reasoning and the likes. The therapist may use various modes of treatment and impart some training on life-skill, response-prevention technique, behaviour-modelling, relaxation, habit-reversal etc. Each session may last from 30 minutes to an hour.
