I’m trying to learn for my Psychology class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
In comparison with the other theories studied so far, behavior therapy is unique in that it strictly adheres to the principles of the scientific method with therapeutic techniques that are empirically supported. In addition, evidence-based practice is highly valued in behavior therapy. Behavior therapists conduct a thorough functional assessment to identify and gather information about client issues. In your post, address the following:
- Describe how you would build a relationship with your client based on the therapeutic process of behavior therapy. Include the characteristics and concepts from behavior therapy in your discussion.
- Think of a behavior change your client might want to make. Using the ABC model from behavior therapy describe a functional assessment to help your client make behavior changes.
- Evidence-based practices are highly valued in both behavior therapy and cognitive behavior therapy. How might you integrate evidence-based practices in your work with clients?
