The precise procedure of punishment selected in any instance can be determined by several considerations, that is to say, the gravity of the conduct, the danger for the subject and the others, the facility in particular to put in practice the procedure in a scene, and the necessary training of the person who applies the process of behavioural modification. The punishment to use is anyone, a series of rules is due to follow or principles so that he is effective (Soft, 1994 mentioned by Kazdin, 1978), these are: It must inquire to the subject what or as is specifically going to be the conducts to be punished; must also inquire it into what will be the punishment to the conduct in question; once fulfilled the points previous, the punishment in the first opportunity will be offered that the subject emits the conduct and it does whenever it; this implies that it is due to punish always and not sometimes; the punishment must be contingent to the conduct, and must have a short latency; the punishment always must be of the same intensity and not to depend on the emotional state of it applies whom it; the punishment is not due to generalize, must be of individual form and following the characteristics of each subject. After making the analysis of I mistreat and the punishment would go to mention the existing differences enters concepts both. As I am already mentioned I mistreat has a central component, which talks about the negative interference of the development of the person; on the other hand, the punishment is seen like a procedure of modification of conduct that has the aim to correct certain lack that has emitted the person; it is used to reduce the probability that an answer returns to arise; it is quite important to mention that the punishment not always entails physical pain; examples of the previous thing, they find in the analysis of the negative punishment.
