Can Animal Trainers and People Trainers Learn from Each Other?

Can animal trainers and people trainers learn from each other? You Bet! We are pleased to be invited to participate in a unique symposium hosted by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.

The conference is entitled "A Behavior in Practice Symposium"

April 19-21, 2013, Warwick RI

This symposium will feature hands-on work with:
Dr. Susan Friedman
Dr. Lore Haug
Theresa McKeon
Chirag Patel
Plus a special opportunity to participate in a Chicken Mini-Workshop with Bob Bailey and Parvene Farhoody MS
This unique 3-day event will focus on putting into practice the many skills discussed and demonstrated in the presentations, with large group, small group and individual feedback and instruction. We will also be making a music video to demonstrate and play with "DROs." - "other" behaviors that can be used for fun or for work in building better skills when modifying behavior. This will be presented as a hands-on, single track event, with all participants involved in all stages and facets of the weekend. Participants will be able to discuss their own cases or their own animals, get feedback on questions,  and learn from other members as well as from the extremely knowledgeable staff who will be on hand throughout the conference. This event is open to the public, and registration will be extremely limited (150 people).

"Creating Focus from Confusion: The Tag Point Is"  Theresa McKeon

Ever wish you could push a button and have everything fall into place? Tag points do just that!

Whether you are an instructor or a student, using "The Tag Point Is" can guide you through the information jungle and straight to success.  We'll take a look at the composition of a tag point and then jump right in and give it a try while we work together throughout the weekend on all of the presentations.
