Description: 
All animals behave as they do based on the consequences of their behavior. Every behavior has a consequence, and the likelihood of a behavior continuing depends on the consequences of that behavior. Consequences fall into one of two categories - reinforcement or punishment. Understanding how consequences influence behavior is the key to changing behavior.
