* The terms positive punishment and negative punishment stem from an early 20th century theory known as behaviorism. These are unfortunate and misleading terms because these situations aren't always "punishments" but are often the natural consequences of behavior. Positive punishment simply means that something negative is increased with a behavior. For example, conflict that escalates if you yell at someone.
