Behavioral Health vs. Mental Health
Types of Behavioral Therapies
- System Desensitization – a type of classic conditioning used to treat phobias
- Aversion Therapy – is used to treat addictions. Therapists will associate one’s substance of choice with something they dislike, to try to make them grow an aversion for the drug.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – teaches that a person’s thoughts influence their actions. If they think positively and toward the right direction, their behaviors and other patterns should follow. This type of therapy has become increasingly popular over the last few years.
