Practical Applications for Classical Conditioning


You’ve read all the books, attended the seminars, participated on the discussion lists – now what!  You understand the theory behind classical conditioning, but how do you make it work for you in the real world?  This course will guide you through the process of using classical conditioning in real life situations – when and how to use it and how to help your clients understand that they are not rewarding bad behavior.  Classical conditioning is a very powerful and elegent technique, and – more importantly – a technique which will not only stop the behavior, but change the animal’s perception of the stimulus that is causing problems.
