The Constructional Approach for Addressing Fear Responses and Aggressive Behavior for Parrots

On Demand Webinar with Barbara Heidenreich for Parrot Enthusiasts

The Constructional Approach for Addressing Fear Responses and Aggressive Behavior

When parrots show fear responses or aggressive behavior, traditionally our first step has involved delivering preferred food items. But some animals present such extreme responses in the presence of humans, that food holds little value. Trying to use systematic desensitization and keeping animals below threshold can be challenging to apply due to many reasons. And results are often slowly realized in these cases, if at all. The constructional approach empowers birds to replace fear or aggressive behavior with responses desired by their caregivers. This presentation will show video examples of how the constructional approach is helping birds (and other animals) and improving animal welfare.
