More on Aversive versus +Punisher

“The experience of the repetition of the outcome of a cue educates the learner on whether the cue signals +R or aversive outcomes.

Cues that are pressure and release, if paired with a +R can quickly become sought stimuli as the B-C consequence is good.”
Susan Friedman

A nice explanation on why pressure does not equal aversion and pressure can be taught as sought after information.
