Reinforces and punishment

  1. 1. Reinforces and Punishment BY HEIDI TENNEY
  2. 2. Reinforcement The process by which a stimulus increases the probability that a preceding behavior will be repeated.
  3. 3. Positive Reinforcement A stimulus added to the environment that brings about the increase in a preceding response. Example: A father gives candy to his son after he picks up his toys.
  4. 4. Negative Reinforcement An unpleasant stimulus whose removal leads to an increase in the probability that a preceding response will be repeated in the future. Example: Class is boring so you doodle on your paper or fall asleep.
  5. 5. Punishment A stimulus that decreases the probability that a previous behavior will occur again.
