Question:

I am writing a paper for my Psychology class but I don't know how to cite this author in APA style. The article is called: "The Benefits of Conditioning" by Emily Wilson written in 2019. Can you help me?

Answer:

After you finish the quote or paraphrase from the author, you need to add the author's last name and the year the text was published in parenthesis before closing the sentence with a period. Example: "Quote inside here" (Wilson 2019).

Question:

Billy is trying to train his cat to stop scratching the couch so he takes away the cat's toys. What type of operant conditioning is Billy using?

Inactive

Answer:

Billy uses negative punishment to train his cat. In this situation, negative means taking something away such as taking a toy away, taking treats away, etc. Punishment is meant to stop the cat from doing a certain behavior again. Billy took something away in order to stop the cat from doing something he doesn't approve of. Therefore, Billy uses negative punishment.

Question:

I need help with my personal statements. I want to be a competitive applicant. Do you know how I can achieve this?

Answer:

The most important aspect of personal statements is being able to show your passion and interests through your writing. Since colleges do not usually do interviews, you can show who you are and what you want to achieve in their institutions through your story. If you decide to write about a hardship that you went through, make sure to focus it around you and how you came out stronger. I can help you brainstorm and/or proofread your statement as well!
