Behavior Modification in Vero Beach, Florida
Behavior modification is a general term that is used in the field of counseling. Counselors rely heavily on theoretical approaches to treat their clients. There are a myriad of theoretical approaches. Target theoretical approaches that work on behavior modification are cognitive behavior therapy and applied behavior analysis.
Typically, mental health counselors or licensed professional counselors are not trained extensively in applied behavior analysis, an approach that us primarily used with children who have difficult or maladaptive behaviors. Perhaps you have heard of applied behavior analysis and autism. Applied behavior analysis or ABA is a theoretical approach that can be beneficial to shaping or changing the behaviors of children who have difficulty in complying with demands from their parents or caretakers.
Applied behavior analysis can be a stringent theoretical approach. While we are trained extensively in applied behavior analysis, not all of the theory is part of our professional wheelhouse. Nu Vision Counseling adapts some of the principles of applied behavior analysis when working with children who have atypical behaviors and difficulty complying with appropriate demands that are given to them.

Behavior Modification and Counseling
There are many theoretical approaches that counselors and behaviorists have available to them. One approach is Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA. ABA is a very rigid approach. Typically clinicians who are trained in ABA are not trained in other approaches, which leaves a gap in their ability to work with the whole-person or whole child. We are trained in ABA as well as a myriad of theoretical approaches. What does that mean to our clients? We are balanced in our training and approaches, rather than trained in one approach solely. We offer a free 15-minute consultation. Our office is located in Vero Beach, Florida. Please call 772.742.2020 to speak with a counselor and to set up an appointment.
