Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Treatment is probably the most recognized approach that is being used widely today. Using both cognitive and behavioral approaches to problem solving, it can be highly effective when administrating traditional therapy. This basic therapeutic approach can be modified by the attending therapist to fit into the personality style of the youth.
Behavioral Therapy is effective when the youth requires some basic tangible rewards for changing his behavior. Setting goals that have achievable rewards have high value to youth who need to see tangible results. As we know, some youth learn societal values just from practicing doing things the right way to achieve tangible rewards. If a youth learns to come home at a certain time during the week in order to achieve beneficial points, he eventually may learn that coming home on time is a socially acceptable behavior.
