Aversion therapy refers to the classical condition ing technique for attempting to eliminate unwanted behaviour by pairing an unpleasant (aversive) stimulus with the behaviour—for example, inducing nausea when alcohol is consumed. A form of behavior therapy in which the undesirable response leads to an aversive stimulus (e.g., the patient shocks herself every time she reaches for a cigarette).

Other /More definition:
Aversion therapy refers to a controversial type of treatment in which an undesired behavior is followed consistently by an unpleasant consequence, thus decreasing the strength of the behavior over time; suppressing an undesirable response by associating it with aversive (painful or uncomfortable) stimuli. It is a type of behavioral therapy, based on classical conditioning techniques, that uses some aversive stimulus to counter-condition the patient's response.
