There are two kinds of punishment and reinforcement in applied behavior analysis. These said terms are having positive and negative aspects. It is really difficult to perfectly distinguish these four said terms with lot of perfection. In the present scenario, there is a perfect need to develop right kind of interventions in order to improve behavior.
It is to be noted that negative reinforcement largely occurs when a particular stimulus is perfectly removed after a certain behavior is demonstrated. The probability of certain behavior rightly occurring again and again in the future is more increased mainly because of avoiding/ removing the negative consequence with lots of perfections. It isn’t regarded as a punishment procedure under any situations and circumstances. I made my own dish for dinner in order to avoid my mother nagging.
Positive punishment largely works through presenting a perfect negative consequence after an unsought behavior is demonstrated, making the said behavior less probably to happen in the near future under any situations and circumstances. A kid directly picks his nose when the teacher is teaching in the class and the teacher immediately displays an act or expression of criticism and censure on him in front of his friends and classmates.
