Adult behaviour and personality characteristics are influenced by events that occur during the early years of life. Many problems that confront society – aggression, alienation, suicide and mental illness – could perhaps be averted if we better understood how certain behaviours develop, and why they appear when they do. Behaviour therapy methods – systematic desensitisation, assertive training, positive reinforcement and self-regulation, amongst others – have been used successfully in treating a wide range of problems.
