allows for differential reinforcement of verbal responsesPrivate Stimuli and the Verbal Communityodifficult to teach individual to describe private stimuli because it's unclear to the listener if the responses are correctDefinition of Private Stimulusophysical energy changeocapable of affecting a sense organoaffects only the individual; other individuals are not affectedNervous System Receptorsoreceptors = parts of nervous system capable of being affected by stimuliPrivate Stimuli Receptorsoinvolve receptors within the body (nerve endings, thermoreceptors, vestibular, kinesthetic, mechanoreceptors)Public Stimuli Receptorsoreceptors near or on surface of skin (photoreceptor, phonoreceptor, chemoreceptors, mechanoreceptors, thermoreceptors, free nerve endings)Lesson 29: Public AccompanimentFour Ways:oin which the verbal community attempts to overcome the difficulty of not having direct access to private eventsofirst is public accompanimentDefinition of Public Accompanimentoa way in which the verbal community brings verbal behavior under the control of private stimuliodefining features:private stimuluscollateral public stimulusreinforcement for given response contingent on the presence of public stimulusPublic Stimuli and Collateral Private Stimulionot all public stimuli have collateral private stimuliLesson 30: Collateral ResponsePrivate Stimulation and Collateral Responsesoadditional information about private events available in collateral responsese.g. crying, moaning, holding injured/painful area, etc.Definition of Collateral Response
