positive reinforcement (OCD glossary)

An action or behavior is applied and the consequence is that the frequency of the behavior will increase. For example, when a teacher praises a student for raising his/her hand in class before speaking, the likelihood of the student's behavior of raising his/her hand before speaking will increase.
