Change Reinforcements

Albert Bandura says if you want to change behavior, have to change the reinforcement. Three types of reinforcement:

  1. past reinforcement, ala traditional behaviorism.
  2. promised reinforcements (incentives) that we can imagine.
  3. vicarious reinforcement -- seeing and recalling the model being reinforced.
