Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) expands upon the traditional classical and operant conditioning models of understanding about behavior and furthers the exploration into core beliefs and themes in patterned thinking and the impact on behavior. Positive Psychology emerged as an outbranch of operant conditioning, emphasizing the idea that if helplessness can be learned, then positive feelings may be learned as well.
