by Merrill Winston, Ph.D., BCBA-D
founder and owner of Winston Behavioral Solutions

From his book Adventures in Special Education, Dr. Winston outlines the different categories of problems with aversives which include,

  • problems with tasks
  • extinction conditions
  • blocked access to reinforcers
  • reinforcer removal
  • words associated with reinforcer removal
  • aversive properties of positive reinforcement
  • response-produced aversives
  • atypical aversives
  • non-aversives that should be (it should be aversive to make the teacher cry, but it isn't)

There is also a discussion of ways for individuals to learn how to cope (like all of us) with those aversives that cannot be avoided completely.
