7 Myths about Negative Reinforcement
This badge signifies the user has listened to the podcast 7 Myths about Negative Reinforcement. Do you have doubts about negative reinforcement? I understand! I sure did. That was until someone took the time to clear up some misunderstandings I had because of what I had been previously taught. That moment changed my life and how I am now able to help improve animal welfare. Many animals are unable to contact positive reinforcement due to competing negative reinforcement contingencies.

But the mythology surrounding negative reinforcement can hold trainers back which can result in delays to proper interventions for animals. In this podcast I go over 7 myths about negative reinforcement to help trainers learn more about this valuable procedure for optimizing animal welfare.
