Behavioral Therapy Q & A

What is behavioral therapy?

Behavioral therapy is a general term that includes the various tools and techniques used to treat mental health conditions. Behavioral therapy aims to identify and change negative behaviors to improve mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

These types of therapies function on the idea that all behaviors are learned and changeable. It’s a highly focused and action-based form of therapy. 

What are the types of behavioral therapy?

There are many types of behavioral therapy. Some of the techniques available at Arjun Reyes MD and Associates include:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts and beliefs influence your behaviors and feelings. The goal of CBT is to help you change your negative thoughts and behaviors to improve your future self. 

Mindfulness-based CBT (M-CBT)

M-CBT combines CBT with mindfulness-based practices. This type of behavioral therapy helps you cultivate awareness of the here and now without judgment or expectations. The team at Arjun Reyes MD and Associates uses M-CBT to reduce stress and improve emotional well-being. 

The adult, adolescent, and child psychiatric practice also offers an M-CBT focused trauma support group for trauma survivors. 

Expressive healing group

The expressive healing group at Arjun Reyes MD and Associates is a sensory-based approach that encourages people of all ages to become active participants in their recovery through their artistic abilities. 

Couples and family therapy is also available at Arjun Reyes MD and Associates.
