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