Document Summary

Sending a person to prison is seen as punishment for committing a crime. But going to prison is not likely to be an immediate consequence of committing the crime. Above examples = unconditional punishers, which are stimuli that are punishing without prior learning. Reprimand: a reprimand is a strong negative verbal stimulus immediately contingent on behavior, example: pa(cid:396)e(cid:374)t sa(cid:455)i(cid:374)g, (cid:862)no! It is likely that the verbal component of a reprimand is a conditioned punisher; firm grasp = unconditioned punisher. In some cases, the effectiveness of reprimands has been increased by pairing them with other punishers. For example, dorsey, iwata, ong, and mcsween (1980) paired reprimands with a water-mist spray to suppress self-injurious behavior in individuals with developmental disabilities. This caused the reprimands to become effective not only in the original setting but also in a setting where the mist had not been used.
