Behavioral Therapy Toronto – Child and Youth Therapy
Behavioral issues including ADHD and anger management can be improved through coping and strategic methods, put in place and practiced to help with transitions, triggers and so forth. This form of therapy seeks to identify and help change potentially self-destructive or unhealthy behaviors. It functions on the idea that all behaviors are learned and that unhealthy behaviors can be changed. The focus of treatment is often on current problems and how to change them.
There are also a number of different types of behavioral therapy; our therapist specializes in CBT, which is explained below:
Cognitive behavioral therapy is extremely popular. It combines behavioral therapy with cognitive therapy. Treatment is centered on how someone’s thoughts and beliefs influence their actions and moods. It often focuses on a person’s current problems and how to solve them. The long-term goal is to change a person’s thinking and behavioural patterns to healthier ones.
Other methods used are cognitive behavioral play therapy, system desensitization and aversion therapy.
