I need to give one strength of classical conditioning and explain it.

I have that it has many practical applications, but I am unsure on how to explain that.

Thanks

An example of a practical application is used during aversion therapy, where for example, an alcoholic is given a drug that promotes them to feel sick, while then drinking alcohol. The individual will associate feeling Ill (the drug) with the alcohol, and as such will stop drinking it. This is classical conditioning therapy, and can be used in a variety of circumstances, although unethical.

Classical conditioning also has a lot of validity as proven by various researchers such as Pavlov and his dog study. You can also relate this to how students may feel hunger when they hear the dinner bell at school, etc.

Hope this helps.
