Counter Conditioning pairs a stimulus that triggers unwanted behaviors with new, more desribale behaviors.This is an example of classical conditioning.

A good example of this...

Let's say you're afraid of heights. To get over heights, you would be conditioned to be okay around heights by bringing you up floor by floor of a high building until you are able to go to the roof without having an episode.

Aversive Conditioning replaces a positive response to a bad stimulus with a negative one.This is an example of Classical Conditioning.

Someone wants to stop biting their nails, so they put a vinegar solution on their nails so that everytime they bite their nails they'll tastet he vinegar. After that every time they go to bite their nails they'll remember the bad taste.

An example of Aversive Conditioning...

Proposed by Joseph Wolpe

A Token Economy is when a client behaves appropriately, they are rewarded with a token that can be turned in for something nice.This is an example of Operant Conditioning.

A client who is a cleptomaniac doesn't steal anything for two days. The client gets a token, and when she gets ten tokens, she can enjoy a day at the water park.

An example...

Succesive Approximation is a series of behaviors that gradually become more similar to a target behavior.

Example of Succesive Approximation

Let's say a guy wants to run a twenty-six mile marathon, but can't run that far yet. He will run one mile each night, and keep building up until he can finally reach the goal he wants.
