Reinforcement theory is based on the relationship between behavior and its consequences. In the workplace, reinforcement can be applied to change or modify on-the-job behavior through incentives and rewards.

A theory by Skinner suggests that behaviour is based on reinforcement. A reinforcement is something that will strengthen behaviour. A positive reinforcement is something that will provide something rewarding for somebody.It is not the same thing, A negative reinforcement is something that gets rid of something unpleasant, therefore the behaviour is likely to be repeated. For example, a headache. Taking painkillers for your headache removes the pain from your head. The taking of the painkillers removed the pain therefore it is likely to be repeated.However a punishment weakens behaviour and therefore behaviour is not likely to be repeated.

In the mid 1970s, Peter Lewinsohn argued that depression is caused by a combination of stressors in a person's environment and a lack of personal skills. More specifically, the environmental stressors cause a person to receive a low rate of positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement occurs when people do something they find pleasurable and rewarding. According to learning theory, receiving positive reinforcement increases the chances that people will repeat the sorts of actions they have taken that led them to receive that reinforcement. In other words, people will tend to repeat those behaviors that get reinforced

It is based on the theory that man at one time evolved from a simpiler life form into what we are today.

The concept of reinforcement was given by Edward Thorndike in his theory of Connectivism/ Connectionist theory of learning. He gave three laws - Law of readiness,Law of exercise and Law of effect. The law of effect in particular talks about reinforcement; "responses that produce a satisfying effect in a particular situation become more likely to occur again in that situation, and responses that produce a discomforting effect become less likely to occur again in that situation". Here, the satisfying situation/effect become a reinforcer, positive or negative.

The reinforcement itself. Though the result/ reinforcement will vary depending if the cause was positive or negative, they will both ultimately give a reinforcement.
