Adding Stimulus control to behaviors.

So what is a cue?

A cue is a Discriminative Stimulus (Sd)

Sis a change in the environment, which at a given moment increases, (or in the case of punishment, decreases) the frequency of a behavior (or one of its qualities, such as duration, intensity, etc.). Sd has a so-called evocative effect. When a bowl of soup appears in front of you, it is a cue for you to take a spoon and start eating. Sd increases the probability of a behavior occurring at a given moment. The effects of Sd, as opposed to the effects of a consequence, can be observed HERE and NOW. In operant conditioning, stimuli do not appear without consequences. That is why in behavior analysis we have types of Sd as e.g. Sor SdR i.e. discriminative stimulus for punishment or reinforcement.

During this webinar we will talk about:
