On the contrary, have you ever fallen ill with the stomach flu soon after eating a particular food and found that you were not able to eat that food again, even months or years later?

Have you or someone you know ever encountered a person or an animal with a phobia reacting to the stimulus that evokes their fear response?

Unit 4 Journal

Instructions

In operant conditioning, voluntary behavior is trained mainly through the use of rewards; however, it is not always clear what rewards will motivate the trainee. For example, most dogs will work hard for treats, but cats are a different story. Some children are naturally motivated to learn to read and do not need any rewards for doing their homework while other children require structure and support when acquiring their reading skills.

Unit 5 Journal

Instructions

From a behavioristic point of view, the purpose of punishment is to eliminate unwanted behavior. It should not be an expression of frustration on the part of the trainer, nor an act of revenge to make people pay for what they did. If punishment is correctly applied, it can be a useful training tool; however, it is often misused.

Have you ever experienced ineffective punishment application? Perhaps you have witnessed this happening. Briefly describe the situation, and explain what you think could have been done to improve the training outcome.
