Behavioural-cognitive therapy

Behavioural Cognitive Therapy (BCT) is a psychotherapy that combines the two psychotherapy modalities Behavioural and Cognitive. The behavioural is based on well-established empirical laws of learning. Human behaviour can be: cognitive, emotional and motoric within the three subsystems of nervous activity. Mental disorders, disorders and illnesses are the result of wrong learning techniques. Cognitive theorists emphasize the impact of thinking on how we feel and how we behave. Philosophy is contained in the dictum of Epictetus: "People are not disturbed by things in themselves, but by their view of those things."

Due to significant research evidence of its effectiveness, BCT is now considered the therapy of choice for many psychiatric disorders and is one of the most influential schools for understanding and treating psychiatric disorders.
