Therapeutic Models used for Behaviour change:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - The process of exploring ones Belief systems and attitudes as opposed to one's "thinking" in order to shift mal-adaptive behaviours. In other words, because thinking is not the source of behaviour, it does not make a difference how much one attempts to "tell one's self to do this or do that". Nothing can shift with regards to bahviour until one gets to the source of the behaviour which is one's "relationship, perspective or attitude" towards it.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) - The premise of ACT is that the "automatic" workings of the mind are designed for "survival as opposed to happiness" in line with Eastern traditional Philosophy and thus incorporates Acceptance and Mindfulness strategies in order to develop awareness of the Mind and its workings and where destructive and mal adaptive behaviours exist in order to uses one's rationality to re-connect with one's values in order to reduce stress, take effective action and enjoy the experience of one's life as opposed to avoiding it.
