Behavioral therapy is sometimes also referred to as cognitive-behavioral therapy. In this approach, depression is believed to develop from changes in behavior. The goal is to increase the person's engagement in positive or socially reinforcing activities. Behavior therapy is a structured approach that carefully measures what the person is doing and then seeks to increase chances for positive experience.

Pros: Forces me to face the tasks that I need to do
Cons: None

I went to see an MFT trainee after years of seeing a psychologist and seeing no improvement. My school's counseling center is free for all students and I felt like my therapist really cared about what was happening with me at the moment. He helped me identify how my behaviors were causing me stress and has begun to help me change those behaviors and give my life more freedom.

Pros: Some good common sense advice
Cons: Too impersonal and asks for problems to be defined too soon

I did computer based CBT which I found to be impersonal and I felt under pressure to state what my problems were without understanding them myself. There is some obvious (when you are well) techniques but without confronting the deep emotional problems first I found it all to be ineffectual. I think this may be useful for people with mild symptoms of anxiety and depression but not for tose with deeper issues and certainly not done on the PC without support

Pros:
Cons: Unfortunately exacerbates the causal factors behind the behavior, thus stimulating increased behavioral expression.

As mentioned, the essential problem with the behavioral approach is that it focuses on the obvious physical symptoms, which is what the MIND intends one to do, and thus, misses the causal facrtors which need to be discovered if the symptom behaviors are to be eliminated.
