Behavioural Therapy - Bx

Behavioural Therapy - Bx: " For a longer, healthier life, physicians may increasingly prescribe 'responsible pleasures' such as artistry, sexuality, and satisfying work.

Good and caring physicians have always tried to supplement their classic medical (pharmacological) prescriptions with sensible advice for living. Recently however, empirical advice has advanced this common practice to a new level of scientifically based advice, or 'behavioral prescriptions.' For example, behavioral prescriptions that I offer my patients include participating in the arts (such as dancing, playing an instrument, or singing), enjoying nature, doing work that is meaningful and gratifying, engaging in responsible sexuality, and encouraging specific stress releasing physiological behaviors such as crying and laughing."

Just like drug therapy ( Rx), good doctors also prescribe behavioural therapy ( Bx) !

    Behavioral therapy can be a useful treatment tool in an array of mental illnesses and symptoms of mental illness that involve maladaptive behavior, such as sub-stance abuse, aggressive behavior, anger management, eating disorders, phobias, and anxiety disorders. It is also used to treat organic disorders such as incontinence and insomnia by changing the behaviors that might be contributing to these disorders.
