Behaviour therapy is an umbrella term for the treatment that focuses on the identification and rectification of potentially self-destructive or unhealthy behaviors. It is based on the idea that all behaviors are learned and that unhealthy behaviors can be unlearned through repetitive practice. It focuses on remolding or reshaping current behaviors which are unhealthy.
