Our Process

Responsive Design

At Respect Behavior Therapy (RBT), our mission is to empower individuals to foster positive behavior patterns and develop respectful relationships with themselves and others. Our approach to therapy is evidence-based, holistic, and focused on the individual's unique needs. The following outlines our process for Respect Behavior Therapy.

  1. Initial Assessment: Our journey together starts with a comprehensive assessment to understand your specific concerns, goals, and unique background. This allows our therapists to tailor a therapy plan that aligns with your individual needs and preferences.
  2. Goal Setting: We collaboratively set realistic, achievable goals that focus on building respect for oneself and others. Goals are designed to be flexible and adaptable, allowing for adjustments as you progress through therapy.
  3. Customized Treatment Plan: Our therapists develop a personalized treatment plan that integrates various therapeutic approaches, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) or others. This customized plan targets the root causes of disrespectful behavior and helps you develop healthier coping strategies.
  4. Skill Building: Through structured therapy sessions, you will learn essential skills and techniques to foster respectful behavior. These include effective communication, emotional regulation, assertiveness, empathy, and conflict resolution.
  5. Practice and Application: With the guidance of your therapist, you will apply the skills and techniques learned in real-life situations. This process allows you to build confidence in your ability to maintain respectful behavior in various contexts.
  6. Progress Monitoring: We continually evaluate your progress towards your goals, making necessary adjustments to your treatment plan as needed. This helps ensure that you are always moving forward and receiving the most effective support for your growth.
  7. Support Network Integration: We understand the importance of a strong support network in fostering long-term behavior change. Our therapists work to involve your loved ones in the therapeutic process when appropriate, offering guidance and resources to help them support your growth.
  8. Relapse Prevention and Maintenance: As you reach your goals and experience positive change, we will focus on developing strategies to maintain your newfound respectful behavior. We'll also identify potential triggers and develop a relapse prevention plan to help you stay on track.
  9. Gradual Termination: Our ultimate goal is to equip you with the necessary tools and strategies to sustain respectful behavior independently. Once you're ready, we will gradually reduce the frequency of sessions, ensuring you're confident in your ability to maintain your progress.
  10. Follow-up Support: We offer follow-up support and periodic check-ins to help you navigate any challenges that may arise after therapy concludes. Our team remains available to offer guidance and encouragement as you continue your journey toward respectful behavior.

At Respect Behavior Therapy, we are committed to providing a safe, supportive environment that fosters personal growth and lasting change. Together, we will work towards helping you develop a deeper sense of respect for yourself and others, leading to more fulfilling relationships and a happier life.
