Changing behaviours without the use of force or fear

Back home from a very informative seminar presented by Dr. Susan Friedman in Sydney on the weekend of Saturday, August 31, and Sunday, September 1.

Fellow Delta Certified Dog Behavioural Trainer, Karen Donnelly attended the seminar as well, and it was great catching up with Jen Nesbitt Hawes whom we knew from her time working as a veterinary surgeon on the Fraser Coast.

Photo L to R, Karen Donnelly, Jen Nesbitt-Hawes, myself (Carmel Hodgins) and Dr. Susan Friedman. Dr. Friedman is a faculty member in the Department of Psychology at Utah State University.

She has helped pioneer the cross-species application of behaviour analysis to animals, using the same humane philosophy and scientifically sound teaching technology that has been so effective with human learners.

Susan is a steadfast proponent of changing behaviour through facilitation rather than force by focusing on animals' extraordinary biologic capacity to learn.
