Behavior Therapy applies to the application of findings from behavioral science research to help individuals change in ways that they would like to change. Our approach utilizes a Positive Behavior Support model, and evidence-based strategies to help increase the quality of life of the individual  and decrease problematic or self-destructive behavior, such as aggression, property destruction, self-injury, poor anger management, and other behaviors that can interfere with an individual’s ability to adapt to and live successfully in the community. Behavior Therapy can involve looking at the individual’s early life experiences, long-time internal psychological or emotional conflicts, and/or the individual’s personality structure. Generally, however, Behavior Therapy emphasizes the individual’s current environment. It focuses on making positive changes in that environment while improving the individual’s self-control using procedures to expand the person’s skills, abilities, and level of independence.
