CBT is a combination of both. Behavior therapy strictly looks at behavior modification (i.e. reward and punishment) vs. cognitive therapy which looks at how a person thinks and perceives the world and themselves.

are the techniques different in cbt, behavior therapy, and cognitive therapy? or is the relationship with the therapist different?

thank you for you time

Techniques are different between cognitive therapy and behavior therapy and they are combined in CBT. Relationship should remain the same, an important component in establishing trust, in all three therapies.
