Antecedents…have last names

Antecedents have last names.
Jose Martinez-Diaz

Antecedents aren’t just something that happens before a behavaviour.  They can alter a learners behaviour depending on what that antecedent indicates will follow (consequence) should that behaviour occur.

So antecedents have last names….antecedent (Sd) for reinforcement or punishment.  Then within that there are categories for negative or positive and conditioned or unconditioned consequences (postcedents).
