Mindfulness and Behavioural Therapy Course
Mindfulness and Behavioural Therapy Course devised and issued by Vita Online Learning and Education
Behavioral therapies are based on the theory of classical conditioning. The premise is that all behavior is learned; faulty learning (i.e. conditioning) is the cause of abnormal behavior. Therefore the individual has to learn the correct or acceptable behavior
Behavioural Therapy employs mental and physical exercise to build and strengthen the excitatory processes, creating a new balance where they can dominate the brain functioning and overcome problematic behaviour.
