Description:

Behavior therapy is one of the most discussed schools of thought in psychology, it is tagged by Ernest Hilgard of Stanford University as the first force of psychology. However much discussed in text books, it is one of the most technical, strategy-driven, and scientific among the approaches, such that attempting to visualize the concepts read in textbooks is challenging for an undergraduate student. Thus, a demonstration of the modern behaviorism concepts would be helpful in visualizing how psychological concepts are applied in practice and in everyday life.
