Thank you for the opportunity to help you!

In Differential Reinforcement, a positive stimulus is provided when a positive behavior is present. The use of punishment is not required in order to discourage a negative behavior. It is possible to ignore the negative behavior, and stimulate the  positive or desirable behavior in order to reduce a problem behavior.
