Writing Assignment #10: Cognitive/Behavior Therapy
Behavioral and cognitive therapeutic approaches may be helpful in modifying a behavior that would not be considered abnormal but that an individual might still want to change (e.g., lack of exercise, unhealthy eating, smoking, etc.). Think about a behavior that you would like to do more or less frequently. Now that you are familiar with behavioral and cognitive therapies, imagine that you are your own personal therapist. What kinds of recommendations might you make to increase/decrease desired behaviors? Provide recommendations from both the behavioral and cognitive perspectives.
Remember, your essay must be a minimum of 250 words.
