This workshop will reduce the stress and frustration of having to change human behaviour to help animals and increase your satisfaction and confidence working with clients and as a result become more successful in your business.

This weekend will give you the tools and knowledge to be more effective at changing human behaviour and helping people help their animals. As a result you will help more animals and more people will recommend your services as someone who can help in your chosen field of therapy whether you work with dogs, cats, parrots, equines or any other companion animal

Ben, Catherine and Suzanne have a vast range of experience in different fields of animal behaviour and welfare across multi species working with clients to change their behaviour. They have combined their knowledge of the science of behaviour with practical tools and exercises to give a full understanding to effectively change human behaviour and deliver and engaging, fun participatory style that allows for the experience and knowledge of all participants too.

This course is for behaviourists and trainers of dogs, horses and other animals.  Strictly limited to 20 places this will be a great and rare opportunity for some really special CPD that will make a difference to your work.

Course facilitators:

Ben Hart: Ben uses the practical application of human behaviour to deliver training courses, workshops, clinics, home visits and books that are ethical and tailor made to individual training situations. Ben helps people, horses, donkeys and mules reach their true potential. The science of behaviour allows a truthful understanding of communication and learning both in equine and humans; the art of behaviour develops the feel that allows the practical application of the science. Ben runs Harts Horsemanship and Ben Hart training services. Ben trains people and animals in the UK and overseas.

Suzanne Rogers: Suzanne runs Learning About Animals organising events in behaviour and welfare and providing equine behaviour consultations - however her primary career is her consultancy work with animal welfare organisations in the field of human behaviour change for animal welfare. She has managed and acted as an advisor for numerous projects in the UK and overseas with organisations including WSPA, IFAW, World Horse Welfare and Humane Society International. She is also a co-founder and programme advisor for Change For Animals Foundation, which values the importance of understanding human behaviour to truly create a change for animals.

Catherine Bell: Dr Catherine Bell is an equine behaviourist with a keen interest in working with human behaviour in order to solve equine problems. There are many ways of doing this, perhaps as many ways as there are horse owners. The key to being successful is not to attempt to choose a favoured method of human behaviour change and try to use it, but allow the behaviour and personality of the client to dictate the method of HBC that is appropriate. Consequently, Catherine continues to study a variety of forms of behavioural psychology, counselling and self-determination theory, weaving them together into ways that ultimately help horses.
