    Operant conditioning separates itself from classical conditioning because it is highly complex, integrating positive and negative conditioning into its practices; whereas, classical conditioning focuses only on either positive or negative conditioning but not both together.

    REWARD: I think a reward can be both positive and negative. It can only depend on the type of a reward that one can get after performing a certain action. You do good your reward can be praised or prize same with doing bad your reward can be a punishment.

    Animal training - The principles of shaping are used to teach animals certain behaviour. The animal is reinforced for any behaviour which moves toward the desired goal, as in animal training or training guide dogs. Behaviour modification - Positive reinforcement and the withdrawal of reinforcement is administered to eliminate inappropriate behaviour and to teach new responses, i.e. modify behaviour.

    A technique which rewards people for appropriate behaviour with tokens which can then be traded for privileges. For example, primary school children could be given gold stars as a reward for good behaviour which could then be traded in for certain privileges at the end of the week. These privileges could range from time on the class computer or extra play time.
