Notable therapists

Behavioural family therapy (BFT) or cognitive behavioral family therapy is a form of family therapy based on the application of the principles of cognitive behavior therapy and learning theory to the family setting.

Based on the work of John Gottman, Albert Ellis, Albert Bandura problems are seen as the result of operant conditioning that reinforce negative behaviors within the family’s interpersonal social exchanges that extinguish desired behavior and promote incentives toward unwanted behaviors. This can lead to irrational beliefs and a faulty family schema.

Treatment techniquesEdit

Treatment is aimed at reversing these forces and to promote desired behavior and to extinguish unwanted behavior
