Episode 2 - Conditioned Reinforcers in the Social Setting

In this episode, Rob, Diana, and Jackie review research on establishing conditioned reinforcers through social means.  Topics include using pairing to make praise reinforcing and learning that books can be reinforcing through observation of another person.  We also discuss our favorite novel praise statements and get to the bottom of Rob's spending habits.
