The objective of this study is to perform a meta-analysis of studies carried out on the effectiveness of behavioral activation therapy and to make a report on the contributions and limitations of these investigations. Relevant studies were identified through Pubmed and Researchgate databases. Only recently published studies implicated in the efficacy of the technique of behavioral activation were considered. Based on the researches analyzed, it is observed that the effectiveness of behavioral activation therapy is not inferior to that of cognitive therapy. In addition, it is demonstrated that the contributions of this treatment are not only limited to the approach to depression, but also to other types of problems, such as anxiety disorders, improvement of eating habits and oncological diseases. It is concluded that, despite limitations such as lack of a control group or small amount of sample, behavioral activation therapy is as effective for all these problems as is cognitive therapy, even with therapists with less training.
