Cognitive and Behavioural Psychology.
Behavioral and Cognitive Psychology uses principles of human learning and development as well as cognitive processing in overcoming problem behavior, emotional thinking, and thinking. It uses these same principles in helping people live better lives. Behavioral and cognitive psychologists do research, training, education, and clinical practice.
Behavioral and cognitive psychologists understand applied behavior analysis, behavior therapy, cognitive therapy, and cognitive psychology, social learning theories, emotional processing theories, and information processing theories. They know how to apply this knowledge to the human condition.
Cognitive and Behavioral Psychology has been applied to a wide range of problems which include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Anxiety disorders
* Depressive disorders
* Personality disorders
* Substance abuse
* Health-related problems
* Autism Spectrum Disorders
* Violence and aggressive behavior
* Developmental and intellectual disabilities

Cognitive and behavioral psychologists serve a wide variety of populations, including children, adolescents, adults and older adults. Behavioral procedures have been successfully used with individuals, couples, groups, families, classrooms and organizations, as well as in a variety of settings (homes, schools, clinics, hospitals, workplaces, correctional facilities, communities).
Skills and Procedures Utilized
Behavioral and cognitive psychologists measure behavior and cognitions. They create case conceptualizations based on learning principles and ways in which emotions and cognitions are processed. They use evidence-based treatments that are adapted to individual persons. They do an ongoing assessment of the effectiveness of their interventions and modify their treatment as appropriate.

Module 3: CBT approaches to Behavioural Change
Behaviorism, also known as behavioral psychology, is a theory of learning based on the idea that all behaviors are acquired through conditioning. Conditioning occurs through interaction with the environment. Behaviorists believe that our responses to environmental stimuli shape our actions.1
According to this school of thought, behavior can be studied in a systematic and observable manner regardless of internal mental states.2 According to this perspective, only observable behavior should be considered—cognitions, emotions, and moods are far too subjective.
Strict behaviorists believed that any person can potentially be trained to perform any task, regardless of genetic background, personality traits, and internal thoughts (within the limits of their physical capabilities). It only requires the right conditioning.
