Behavioural Therapy - Bx

Posted Apr 09 2009 6:22pm
Behavioural Therapy - Bx: " For a longer, healthier life, physicians may increasingly prescribe 'responsible pleasures' such as artistry, sexuality, and satisfying work.

Good and caring physicians have always tried to supplement their classic medical (pharmacological) prescriptions with sensible advice for living. Recently however, empirical advice has advanced this common practice to a new level of scientifically based advice, or 'behavioral prescriptions.' For example, behavioral prescriptions that I offer my patients include participating in the arts (such as dancing, playing an instrument, or singing), enjoying nature, doing work that is meaningful and gratifying, engaging in responsible sexuality, and encouraging specific stress releasing physiological behaviors such as crying and laughing."

Just like drug therapy ( Rx), good doctors also prescribe behavioural therapy ( Bx) !
