In this Workshop, you’ll focus on the reactive side of behavior management – what to do after a particular behavior occurs. Using the principle of positive reinforcement, you’ll learn how to use “extinction” to decrease problem behavior. You’ll also learn about differential reinforcement as a strategy. Finally, you’ll weigh the value of punishment as a behavioral change agent.

Learning Objectives

• Use positive reinforcement to address problem behavior.
• Consider the pros and cons of the use of punishment and extinction to address problem behaviors.
• Employ differential reinforcement to increase positive behavior while eliminating inappropriate behaviors.
