behavior therapy

The therapy direction in which I completed an in-depth training is that Behavior therapy.
It is based on various theories of learning theory.

The Basic idea of behavior therapy is:
all behavior has been learned and can therefore be unlearned again.

The first step in therapy is therefore to understand why a person behaves in a certain way and what advantages, but also what disadvantages this brings with it.

Then, together with the therapist, it can be worked out which changes he has to undertake step by step: how he can modify his behavior and his points of view in order to change his experience, his attitudes and his feelings in a favorable direction.

This means that behavior therapy is always solution-oriented and depends on what you, the patient, define as a desirable target state for yourself. The role of the therapist is then to work with you to identify obstacles on the way to the goal in order to subsequently remove these obstacles together with the patient. The planned changes are then often implemented independently and thus between the individual meetings.

It is important that the patient is very transparently involved in the procedure throughout the therapy and that nothing happens against his / her will.
On the contrary: the more you become an expert in your problems, the more you will be able to shape your life the way you want it, even after the therapy has ended.

And ultimately, the goal of behavior therapy is:
To guide people to become clear about their ways of thinking, their behavior and their feelings and to influence them in order to achieve a higher overall life satisfaction and not to be “trapped” in old, problematic behavior and thought patterns.
