this is the question:
1.(a) How would you classically condition an adventuresome 2-year-old to be more fearful of running across a busy street near her house? (b) How would you classically condition a preschool child who is afraid of dogs to enjoy playing with a neighbor's friendly dog? Be sure to identify the UCS, CS, UCR, and CR in both answers.

I Just took a test on this so i can definitely help!
First of all the first example should not be classical conditioning, it should be operent conditioning because your training the boy to do something that he does consciously.
A) you would condition this boy by using Negative Reinforcement, which means in order to get the boy to stop running in traffic you would add a consequence every time he does it. For example every time he runs into the street make him unload the dishwasher etc.
B) To condition the child to love dogs, you should conduct an experiment that makes the child associate the dog with a pleasant feeling. For example you might present the child with his favorite candy after a dog is presented in the room.
UCR: Plea sent feeling
CR: Pleasant feeling when dog enters a room
I hope that answers your question!

Do not ever say that you are stupid or feel stupid for not knowing all of this college lingo. It is quite confusing, especially if you're like me, a first generation college student without the help of your parents to guide you with all of the jargon.
What you should know about obtaining a degree in clinical psychology is that it goes in steps. There is a long process of education that one needs to go through first, but the end result and payoff is worth the years of education necessary to obtain the degree and license. First, you will need to apply to and gain admission to college as an undergraduate student. Here you will obtain a bachelors of art or science degree in psychology. This will take you a minimum of eight semesters or 4 years of college. After this you will apply to graduate school where you work on your Ph.D in clinical psychology. When you have finished the necessary course work and thesis (generally 2-3 years of courses), you will awarded your Masters in psychology. When you finish the remaining course work, internships, and dissertation, you will be awarded your Ph.D in clinical psychology. You will then need to take your board exam and obtain your license to practice. All together, it will take you about 8-10 years to become a licensed clinical psychologist.
Even if this was 5 years ago that chick is wrong.
CR: pleasant feelings with dog
This is classical conditioning because the child is associating stimuli.
You would use operant conditioning to teach the girl to not cross the street by using punishment.

a)You would have to make the two year old negatively associate the busy road with some thing. You could make a loud noise every time she goes near the road, which would scare her, then every time she goes near the road she will be expecting to hear the noise which will make her not want to go there - i hope you get what i mean, i don't think i explained it very well.
b) You would have to associate dogs with something positive and gradually the child will begin to associate dogs with a positive feeling
Sorry i can't remember what UCS, CS UCR and CR stand for but that's the general idea

i don't never heard of this before.
but i would make him grow more fearful by acting out an accident, or using toys to tell him or show him.

It does artwork, if youre talking on the ideal difficulty to the ideal individual. If its evident the guy will call you out of direction. some human beings arent even able to pulling it off to permit you recognize the reality.
