Reinforcement: SLT

According to Social Learning Theory, reinforcement can be direct or indirect. Direct reinforcement occurs when you perform a certain behaviour and are rewarded (positive reinforcement), or it leads to the removal or avoidance of something unpleasant (negative reinforcement). Indirect reinforcement occurs when you observe someone else perform a certain behaviour and receive either positive or negative reinforcement.
