Description

Living and Learning with Animals (LLA) is a seminar focused on the fundamental principles of learning and behavior, and the behavior change technology known as applied behavior analysis. All animals change their behavior due to experience, i.e., they learn, which gives this course trans...-species, and interdisciplinary relevance to all professionals working with behavior.

Living and Learning with Animals is designed to provide a comprehensive and cohesive understanding of applied behavior analysis to improve the lives of all learners in our care. This in-depth weekend seminar includes over 200 instructional slides, video examples, and support materials. Functional Assessment; The Commitment to Ethical Practice; The Case for Empowerment; Procedures for Changing Respondent Behavior; Procedures for Changing Operant Behavior; and, Designing Behavior Change Plans. As a result of attending this seminar, participants will be better able to teach learners effectively and humanely.
