In order to raise awareness for this beneficial form of therapy, we have created a guide with everything you need to know about behavioral therapy.  

What Is Behavioral Therapy?

Behavioral therapy is an umbrella term that refers to a variety of therapies that are used to treat cognitive disabilities and disorders. The belief behind behavioral therapy is that throughout life, individuals can unintentionally adapt and form behaviors that can compromise their cognitive health and function. With targeted techniques and treatments, behavioral therapy has been found to help eliminate or change behaviors that have been linked to common cognitive disorders. This then leads to the reduction, or eradication, of the cognitive disorder being treated. Further, it delivers lasting results for clients looking for long-term healing. 

How Behavioral Therapy Can Help You

Behavioral therapy helps you reduce harmful behaviors as well as equips you with adaptive and healthy behaviors so you can navigate life better. Whether you struggle with a phobia or have a child with ADHD, behavioral therapy has been proven to help in a sustainable way. Simply put, behavioral therapy has something to offer anyone who has a brain. Whether you have a diagnosed cognitive disorder or simply want help practicing healthy behaviors, behavioral therapy is for you! 

Behavioral Therapy Techniques

There is a large variety of behavioral therapy techniques that have been created to properly target specific cognitive functions and abilities. A behavioral counselor will determine which technique to use based on your cognitive and behavioral goals. Some of the techniques that may be used in counseling include tapping exercises, anger management, music therapy, systematic desensitization, and rhythm training. These methods have been proven to help with things such as ADHD, OCD, anxiety, depression, neurodivergent disorders, phobias, and eating disorders. Each of these techniques has been tested to ensure there is no risk, all while achieving a high probability of noticeable change within a minimal amount of time.
