This chapter aims to introduce the development and the key ideas of B. F. Skinner’s behaviour therapy, including the theory of conditioning, its approach to human nature, behavioural function analysis, behavior modification techniques, the counselling strategies and the various techniques that are employed by teachers. The chapter will also clarify and correct many people’s misconceptions about this theory, such as over-conditioning and the negligence of emotions and feelings.
