    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course helped me to better understand classical and operant conditioning. The Self change projects we completed were helpful to teach behavior modification.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about different ways to modify a person's behavior such as punishment and reinforcement techniques. There are positive and negative types of both reinforcement and punishment. Positive means that something is presented such as a piece of candy for reinforcement and a spanking for punishment. Negative is when something is being taken away. For example, if a mother wants her child to get better grades, she may say if you do this then you will not have to do the dishes. Negative punishment works in a simpler way except it is the removal of a stimulus that the person does want.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this course, make sure you study a lot for the exams. Also do not wait to do your self change project.
