Abstract

Behavioral therapy is a short, symptom-focused therapy and generally aims to change the
interactions between the person and his or her environment. Behavioral therapy is an approach designed
to treat unwanted behaviors directly observable, which psychodynamic therapy calls “symptoms”, only
as behaviorists reject the notion that problem behavior is a symptom of underlying conflicts, maintained
by processes of unconscious dynamics. The treatment model is first to evaluate the behavior and then
to modify it through the procedures that modify the old behavior or that learn new behaviors (eg
conditioning techniques, systematic desensitization, modeling, etc.). For children and adults with
autism spectrum notes, the world can experience sensory overload every day. In many countries, art
therapy has been seen for some time as a complementary or helpful therapy within the therapies of
children with autism alongside music therapy, play therapy, etc.
