Similarities and Differences
The main difference between the two forms of therapy is that "while both target negative and unhealthy mental processes, cognitive behavioral therapy also helps people learn healthy and beneficial behaviors" (WiseGeek, 2015, para. 1). Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses more on the cognitive aspect of why people behave a certain way. Behavior therapy also uses a technique that Cognitive Behavioral doesn't--conditioning.
With these two types of therapies being so closely related, it would be fairly easy to use them together to treat a client. Cognitive aspects could be studied, and then their behaviors could be easier understood and changed. Using these therapies together gives the therapist more techniques to try, and more information to talk about with the client to better be able to help them. The client would be given homework, but they may also try and use conditioning methods in order to change or modify a behavior, a reward system, and self-monitoring. These therapies used together would provide much more understanding of a behavior and it's cause, and it would give the client more options to change.
