This is a two day workshop. Day one gives a brief review of operant conditioning; operant conditioning as analogous to natural selection; carrots and organic gardening: why choose positive reinforcement; unconditioned vs conditioned reinforcers; behavioral markers as the fulcrum; creating new reinforcers; preserving existing reinforcers: satiation, inadvertent chaining; and reinforcement timing. Day two addresses reinforcement frequency & schedules of reinforcement; seeing behavior: setting your filter; maximizing reinforcement opportunities: minimizing the need for punishment; what if the environment offers better reinforcers than you have; limits of what reinforcement can do; behavioral economics and the "reinforecement package"; placement of reinforcers; choosing types of reinforcers; and what about punishment?
