Applying Classical Conditioning 1. While caring for a friend’s dog, you notice that it displays a fear-like posture as you roll up a newspaper. You try this several times more and become convinced that this dog is generally afraid of rolled up newspapers. The dog was more than likely hit by the newspaper thus the rolling of the newspaper was associated with hitting the dog. Rolling the newspaper now elicits fear. US= hitting UR= fear Rolling newspaper No response US= hitting + rolling newspaper (pairing) UR= fear CS= rolling newspaper CR= fear 2. Joan, an animal trainer, has been phobic about monkeys since an earlier attack. However, because of the money, she has agreed to work with monkeys for a movie studio.

Working with such cuddly, affectionate, human-like creatures is causing Joan to wonder why she ever felt such extreme distress.
