Behavioural Psychology

Behavioral psychology is a branch of psychology that focuses on the study and alteration of people's behaviors, including their actions, emotions and thoughts. There are four recognized sub-disciplines of behavioral psychology: applied behavior analysis, behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and cognitive-behavior therapy. Techniques that may be applied include cognitive restructuring, behavioral modeling and, most commonly, classical and operant conditioning. The empirically supported behavioral and cognitive approaches used in this specialty apply to a wide range of problems: anxiety disorders, personality disorders, depression, substance abuse, health-related problems, childhood behavioral and emotion regulation problems, developmental disorders, academic problems, couple and family problems, serious mental illness and public health problems.

By presenting a person with both a neutral stimulus and a behavior-inducing stimulus, that person will begin to respond to the neutral stimulus in the same way he or she responds to the behavior-inducing stimulus.
