WHAT ARE APPLICATIONS OF BEHAVIOURAL FAMILY THERAPY?
While the behavioural therapies may be applied to any broadly defined maladaptive overt or covert behaviour that has its origins in environmental contingencies, the following areas are representative of several readilymodifiable problems:
- Child management problems in which either or both parents arewilling to participate in behavioural training programs as cotherapists (for example, temper tantrums, negativism, antisocial behaviour).
- Marital difficulties involving the absence or deficit of negotiation skills and inappropriate mutual reinforcement exchanges.
- Maladaptive behaviour of one member of the family that results inexclusion of that member or undue stress or breakdown of other family members (as in anorexia, school or other phobic behaviour, asthma, etc.).
Maladaptive behaviours resulting from inappropriate or incorrect attitudes and beliefs that are not a function of an acute psychotic state of any member.
