Behavioral Theories (Mood Disorders)
Behavioral theories of mood disorders suggest that these disorders occur as a result of learned behaviors and environmental factors, rather than strictly biological causes. These theories emphasize the importance of understanding patterns of behavior and beliefs that contribute to negative moods and teaching alternative, more positive behaviors. Treatment typically involves cognitive-behavioral therapy or other forms of psychotherapy focused on changing behaviors, thoughts, and beliefs. This is a specialized skill that requires training in psychology or related fields.
