Behavioral Therapy which is done by therapists who monitor and study the behavior of individuals who  are behaving in a unacceptable way and work on finding the reason for that unacceptable  behavior to help them behave the way they should within their society

behaviors is a way to analyze our personalty and predict the reason for the way we behave based on our actions, for instant for serial killers the prevalence of physical abuse was 36% sexual abuse was 26% and psychological abuse was 50% neglect was equally prevalent in the serial killer (18%)
and societal norm populations and this is why judging a person based on their behavior is easier than you think but helping the person who is having a problem with her/his behavior is done by specialized therapists.

Book Description

A highly practical guide for beginning therapists, this concise primer fills the gap between academic training and what newly-minted clinicians need to know for day-to-day work with clients. Illustrated are the "whats," "whens," and "how-tos" of the entire process of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)--from intake, assessment, case conceptualization, and treatment planning, through conducting sessions, making the most of supervision, and termination. Interwoven with an extended case example is expert guidance on confidentiality, informed consent, recordkeeping, and report writing, and on managing relationship issues and common problems that arise in CBT. Invaluable appendices point the reader toward additional resources, including empirically supported treatment manuals, journals, and websites.
