PLA #3 Written Assignment A Negative reinforcement is the process whereby a behavior is made more likely because it is followed by the removal of an aversive stimulus.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
