Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Behavior Therapy
- Behaviour therapy, the earliest of the cognitive and behavioural psychotherapies, is based on the clinical application of extensively researched theories of behaviour, such as learning theory (in which the role of classical and operant conditioning are seen as primary).
Early behavioural approaches did not directly investigate the role of cognition and cognitive processes in the development or maintenance of emotional disorders. (AD)
