Behavioral Psychology

Behavioral psychology, also known as behaviorism, has been an accepted psychological perspective since the early 1900s. Founded by psychologist James B. Watson, behavioral psychology is the study of behaviors that are taught and believed to be able to be untaught if the correct therapy is used.

Behavioral psychology focuses on research, education, training and clinical practice that can be applied to various problems and the people who are experiencing them.

As with most careers in psychology, a master’s degree or higher is required to work in behavioral psychology.
