Behavioural Activation

When we are depressed or going through a rough patch we can end up reducing the amount we do because of our symptoms.  This can create a vicious cycle where a lack of activity keeps our mood low or makes it worse.  Behavioural Activation is a CBT technique for reversing this process by gradually increasing the amount of activity we do in a manageable way.
