Behavioral modification is a therapeutic approach designed to change a particular undesirable behavior that hinders your growth and progression. The approach focuses on exploring your belief and value, surfacing emotional awareness to understand the occurrence of repeated patterns. At MIND-STREAM, we used different modalities to help the client gain personal autonomy and pacing in life. Behavioral modification is recommended for client looking to unstuck a behavior pattern at work, in a relationship, in communication, etc.
Behavioral Modification Approach
Transactional Analysis (TA)
TA is a psychoanalytic theory and method of therapy wherein social transactions are analyzed to determine the ego state of the communicator (whether parent-like, childlike, or adult-like) as a basis for understanding behavior. In transactional analysis, the communicator is taught to alter the ego state as a way to solve emotional problems. The method deviates from Freudian psychoanalysis which focuses on increasing awareness of the contents of unconsciously held ideas.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
SFBT is a future directed, solution focused therapy that focuses on an individual goals. It endeavors to help clients reframe their problems to find solutions. It does not seek to delve deeply into past experiences as psychodynamic therapies do and may appeal to those who want a more targeted, brief counseling experience.
Choice Theory Reality Therapy (CTRT)
CTRT developed by Dr. William Glasser explains that our behavior is driven by our own decisions and that relationships are key to how we act. We learn that the only person's behavior that we can control is our own and that we as individuals have a choice as to how to relate to others in any given situation.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a psychotherapy that assists individuals to change how they think (Cognitive) and change what they do (Behavioral) in order to minimize undesirable symptoms. It is most commonly used in treating anxiety and depression but is effective in treating many issues as well. CBT helps individual breakdown overwhelming issues into smaller, more manageable portions.
Psychodynamic Perspective Theory (PP)
PP theory is a collection of psychological theories which emphasize the importance of drives and other forces in human functioning, especially unconscious drives. The approach holds that childhood experience is the basis for adult personality and relationships.

Emotional Intelligence Therapy
Emotional intelligence describes one's ability to use and understand emotions (both one's own emotions and those of others). The concept of EQ was popularized by Daniel Goleman in his 1995 publication Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ. Goleman described emotional intelligence as having five parts:
Self-awareness: Recognizing one's moods and emotions and their effect on others.
Self-regulation: Using emotional knowledge to prevent moods or emotions from causing impulsive behavior.
Internal motivation: Taking action or making decisions as a result of an inner drive (rather than for immediate rewards such as monetary gain). This drive can be based on optimism, curiosity, ambition, or personal ideals.
Empathy: Understanding the emotions of others and using this knowledge to respond to people based on their emotional state.
Social skills: Using one's emotional intelligence to establish strong relationships and facilitate interactions with.
At MIND-STREAM, we used Emotional intelligence training approach to help client improve both mental and emotional health, reach goals, and develop exponential growth.
