1.In your own words, explain the differences among pos & neg punishment, and extinction, and give an example of each from your work or home setting. Post a minimum of 300 wds.
2. Briefly discuss the how shaping and differential reinforcement are used in tandem to change behavior, and give an example how this might be done. Post a minimum of 300 wds.
3.Is aggression behavior learned? Discuss/explain 2 reasons for your answer, give 1 example. Post a minimum of 200 wds.
4. Describe a behavior you engage in, analyze it in terms of the three term contingency, explaining the relationship among the discriminative stimulus(S-D) – behavior – outcome (reinforcer), and how this relationship would be different with S-Delta as the antecedent stimulus condition, vs. S-D. Post a minimum of 300 wds.
5.Explain/describe how a DRO procedure could be used in tandem with a positive reinforcement procedure to reduce a behavior problem: Define the behavior and describe the methods you would use. Post a minimum of 300 wds.
6.Herrnstein’s Matching Law (concurrent schedules of reinforcement) has tremendous implications for using reinforcement-based behavior change methods in applied environments. Assume you have implemented a behavior change procedure in an applied environment (home, clinic, or classroom) using a token economy. Regarding the potency of your reinforcers, what must be considered if your plan is not working, and what is at least one change you could implement to make it work? Post a minimum of 250 wds.
