Behavioral Activation (BA)


Behavioral Activation (BA) is a therapeutic approach that targets depression by encouraging individuals to engage in positive and rewarding activities. Often used in the treatment of depression, BA aims to counteract the withdrawal and isolation that often accompany depressive symptoms. Therapists collaborate with clients to identify activities that bring them joy, a sense of accomplishment, or satisfaction. By gradually reintroducing these activities into their lives, individuals can experience an improvement in mood and motivation. BA helps clients break the cycle of avoidance and inactivity that perpetuates depression, fostering a renewed sense of purpose and pleasure in daily life.
