Family therapy focuses on problems affecting family members. Emphasis on living in relation with others and that problems affecting one can affect others. Solution to family conflicts and irresponsibility is employed.

Group therapy- people seek therapy in groups of 4- 15 people. It saves on time and cost

Humanistic- people are responsible for their actions and behavior.

Behavior therapy - Is based on the principles of learning to reduce or eliminate maladaptive behavior. Behavior therapists assume that overt maladaptive symptoms are the problem and not unconscious conflicts or inaccurate perceptions. 

Order of effectiveness : behavior therapy , cognitive therapy , family , group , humanistic and lastly psychodynamic therapy , as explained above.
