Using operant conditioning using positive reinforcement
Operant conditioning is a type of learning in which behavior is modified by the consequences of the behavior. In the context of parental alienation, operant conditioning can be used to help the alienated parent and child reconnect. The parent can use positive reinforcement to reward the child for engaging in positive behaviors, such as spending time with the alienated parent or expressing positive feelings towards them.
Using operant conditioning using negative reinforcement
Negative reinforcement in parental alienation is a form of operant conditioning in which a child is rewarded for negative behavior. This type of reinforcement is used to manipulate the child into rejecting one parent and favoring the other. Examples of negative reinforcement in parental alienation include: rewarding the child for negative behavior towards the targeted parent, such as ignoring or avoiding them; punishing the child for positive behavior towards the targeted parent; and providing rewards for negative behavior towards the targeted parent, such as verbal or physical aggression.
