Behavioural Activation for Depression
Behavioural Activation is designed to increase your interaction with positively rewarding activities.
The process capitalises on the beneficial effect that is achieved when we accomplishing something that we find personally positive. The approach is guided by a therapist who works with you to identify specific goals in the form of rewarding or pleasurable activities. These activities are chosen to be consistent with your greater life ambitions or values – essentially, what is important to you.
