Behavioral Family Therapy

Therapists who take a behavioral approach lean heavily on learning theory. They understand the dysfunctional or deviant behaviors occurring in the families they treat as learned responses that can be replaced by more functional behaviors and ways of reacting by the use of behavioral techniques such as those outlined above.
