This module discussed various principles and applications of aversive conditioning. Read through the chapter as well as watch the videos discussed within the lecture to reinforce your understanding of the terminology and application of such. We learn to adapt our behaviors through conditioning and reinforcement. We apply this to our everyday lives without even recognizing it. Keeping this in mind and using what you have learned within the module complete the questions below.
Respond to the following 3 questions using what you learned from the module. Be specific using terminology from the module to make identification with each question and to connect to the examples. Copy and paste the question into a word document and then respond with a thoughtful factual response. To acknowledge all the factual points needed for an in depth response the word count (answers only) should be approximately 350-500. Include your references at the end of the document in APA format.
