About this class;
In this web-class, you will learn how to use the answers to a series of questions to formulate training programs that fulfill the people’s and animals’ needs in their care. Israel Goldiamond created the Constructional Questionnaire to help individuals achieve meaningful change in their lives by identifying the variables responsible for specific behavior patterns. This workshop will demonstrate a modified version of the questionnaire designed to help achieve significant outcomes in human/animal situations. This questionnaire’s application can help target outcomes desired by clients, fulfill the critical consequence for our animals, and make training programs that maintain in the natural environment. This questionnaire is suitable for any training approach, but we will review specifically how Constructional Affection fulfills the requirements of the questionnaire of my recent addition to my family!
