Psychotherapy and Behavior Modification

Posted on: November 3, 2008

In the search to help people understand themselves psychotherapy applies psychological knowledge to help people help themselves or self help. The individual needs to make appropriate changes in their life so that they can be more secure with who they are. People have to be comfortable with how they perceive themselves and how they perceive others. Psychotherapy implements several theoretical models that are interwoven and develops through time. Some models are based on the cognitive-analytical model and these models look at the patient and try to change negative behavior into positive one with time.


Any behavior management takes time and energy. The patient has to want to change the negative behaviors before the change sticks. The patient who is resilient to change will ultimately be forced by their own psyche to repeat the negative behaviors as it becomes a habit. No amount of intervention can change this self-destruction unless the intervention gives the patient a reason to avoid the negative behavior. That reason needs to be so against the norm of the negative behavior that the patient changes the behavior to avoid the negative circumstance or implication.
