    I disagree. What does your text say?

    My text says that these principles represent the basic underpinnings of behavioral treatment approaches. Building on the basic processes of learning, behavioral treatment approaches make this fundamental assumption: Both abnormal behavior and normal behavior are learned. People who act abnormally either have failed to learn the skills they need to cope with the problems of everyday living or have acquired faulty skills and patterns that are being maintained through some form of reinforcement. To modify abnormal behavior, then, behavioral approaches propose that people must learn new behavior to replace the faulty skills they have developed and unlearn their maladaptive behavior patterns.

    'a' for cognitivism school. 'b' for neo behaviorists like bandura and 'd' for psychoanalytic and psychodynamic school of thought.
