Cults in Animal Training

50 Points

This badge signifies the completion of the course Is the Animal Training Industry Susceptible to Generating “Cult-like” Groups?

People often come together over shared interests and can find community there. However certain conditions can turn these groups into high demand/high control situations in which members find it difficult to leave. The animal training industry has the potential to support such groups with its well-intentioned efforts to help animals. We discussed the characteristics of high demand/high control groups, how members are recruited and maintained, and how to help someone leave.

This course takes 1 hour to complete.
