Navigating Behavioral Advice
This badge signifies completion of the course Navigating the World of Behavioral Advice.
In this week’s livestream, we discussed where animal caregivers go for help when addressing undesired behaviors and for achieving behavior goals. Like many communities there can be a tendency to reach out to social media and Google as an initial resource. However, this can inevitably bring up the need for vetting resources. In the animal training world vetting resources can call upon our critical thinking skills. We had some fun exercising these skills. We also evaluated the contingencies that dictate where consumers and providers likely will spend their time attempting to receive support or provide support. Evaluating these can help both parties decide what outlets result in the best outcomes overall. Listen to the replay and see if you agree with our conclusions.
This course takes approximately 1 hour to complete.
