What we’ll geek out about

THIS COURSE has been wrapped into Unlocking Resilience: The Big Course. Learn all about it here! 

Emotions motivate behavior. That means that in order to have a full understanding of behavior, we must also understand emotion. Learning what emotions are, how they work, and how they influence behavior will bring you to a whole new level of training and behavior change.

We’ll cover all kinds of emotion-related topics including:
  • What is an emotion?
  • The neurobiology of emotion
  • The relationship between emotion, cognition, and decision-making
  • Emotion and the body
  • Emotional reactivity and the regulation of emotion
  • How to use this information in animal training and behavior

Jump into the world of emotion and see  behavior in a whole new light. You’ll leave with plenty of new ideas and approaches for preventing and addressing behavior issues.
