Table of Contents


A summary of behavioral and cognitive behavioral therapies is provided regarding the children and adolescents receiving mental health care. The basis of behavioral therapy stems from the idea of conditioning that views responses and actions of human beings as results from environmental interaction. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is formed from social learning theory with treatment models based on operant and classical conditioning concepts. CBT is reviewed along with cognitive behavioral therapy for psychosis (CBTp). Other therapies that are discussed include applied behavioral analysis (ABA), exposure and response prevention (ERP), Maudsley method-family based treatment (FBT), and habit reversal therapy (HRT).
