While behavioral therapy may modify negative behaviors, what happens when these unfavorable patterns will not cease? This is where psychotherapy can be an advantage. Psychotherapy asserts that most individuals are unaware of the causes of their distressing behavioral patterns. The outcome of this type of therapy brings to light the unconscious factors that influence present relationships. By investigating the root of the behavioral problem, eventually, individuals begin to resolve hidden struggles and work through emotions that may be causing conflict in relationships.
