Reinforces and punishment

  1. 1. Reinforces andPunishment By: Samantha Dupuis
  2. 2. Reinforcement Reinforcement is the process by which a stimulus increases the probability that a preceding behavior will be repeated.
  3. 3. Negative Reinforcement An unpleasant stimulus whose removal leads to an increase in the probability that a preceding will be repeated in the future. Example: Turning down music if the volume is too loud.
  4. 4. Positive Reinforcement A stimulus added to the environment that brings about an increase in a preceding response. Example: Receiving a pay check at the end of the week increases the likelihood that you will return to work.
  5. 5. Punishment A stimulus that decreases the probability that a previous behavior will occur again.
  6. 6. Positive Punishment Weakens a response through the application of an unpleasant stimulus Example: Spending time in jail after committing a crime.
  7. 7. Negative Punishment Removing of something pleasant Example: When a child is grounded and cannot have friends over because of bad grades, she will bring her grades up because of this punishment.
