Parent Training-Negative Reinforcement
Implementing negative reinforcement is equally as important as positive reinforcement, both are important to your child’s success by creating a positive consequence for a preferred behavior. Reinforcement must occur for behaviors to continue to happen. Without reinforcement, the behavior will be unlearned and no longer occur (Capella University, 2020).
