Pressure does not equal aversive

“We are not aiming to be in positive or negative reinforcement, we are aiming to elicit the response without aversion. Pressure does not have to be aversive to elicit the correct answer.

The pressure can become a cue that consequence of this B-C relationship is that positive reinforcement is available.

If the cue is aversive then the B-C relationship is a cue for unpleasant contingencies.”
