THE BEHAVIOR THERAPY APPROACH pdf free download. Most psychiatric therapy is directed at overcoming habitual or repetitious unadaptive behavior. All habits depend on the specifics of neural organization, which is ordinarily shaped by physiological development, learning, or both. Unadaptive habits, however, sometimes result from
physiological “distortions” due to lesions of the nervous system or to biochemical abnormalities, such as circulating toxins, or to disorders of endocrine secretion. It is a reasonable presumption that when an unadaptive habit has come into existence through learning, it should be erasable by learning. Experimentally established knowledge of the learning process and of the factors influencing it has generated a range of new procedures for modifying or eliminating unadaptive learned habits; and this is what is known
as conditioning therapy or behavior therapy. All unadaptive habits based on learning are proper targets for behavior therapy. Its main applications have been to the neuroses, to other learned habits that do not fit the definition of neuroses, and to those unadaptive habits of schizophrenics that are based on learning.
