Behavioral activation is the third wave of behavior treatment adopted to cure depression. It is a type of functional-analytical therapies based on psychological scheme regarding "behavior shift" suggested by Skinner[1]. This scheme is generally assumed as analysis of behavior. This field accounts for a more general scope called analysis of clinical behavior. It also illuminates the most efficient methods of professionally applying analysis of behavior.
