This product was originally made as part of a requirement for the creator's BCBA supervision. This modified version is intended to summarize the key points of the article for presentations, review, or a general overview of the important points. The article explores the usefulness of adding punishment to positive reinforcement (pos. R+), rather than employing the principles of positive reinforcement by themselves to learn new skills, an approach commonly used in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), as well as the outcomes and effects of doing so for two participants.
