Behavioral techniques are effective and longstanding techniques whose orgins have been around for hundreds of thousands of years. A huge mistaken assumption people tend to make is that because the dicipline of psychology is only a hundred years old is that it is an undefined psuedo science. In fact it it is thanks primarily to the work of the behavorialists who quantitatively measured behavior that we were able to bring psychology into the modern age. Behaviorilisim has strong history in all cultures as it is common knowledge that positive and negitive reinforcement with the proper stimuli reinforces and eliminates positive and negitive behaviors respectively. Overall Behavoral Psychology is a branch of Psychology that we Psycholigists can not do without.
