1 Day Case Studies – Motivation & Functions of Behaviour:
This one-day seminar explores several different cases, focusing on the background, causes, motivations and functions of the behaviours that clients have reported as problematic.
The format for the day is based around guided discussion and a group approach to each case. By approaching the cases in this way, it is hoped that everyone will be able to both input and learn, through discussion and exploration of the specific situations involved in each situation.
The format for each case follows that of the Case Study requirement for Unit 5 of the Level 5 correspondence course – Analysis & Application
After an introductory presentation, for each of the cases we will discuss:

  • Background history
  • Analysis of the client questionnaire
  • Veterinary history and potential effects of disease, injury or medication where applicable
  • The aetiology of the behaviour issues as a whole; concentrating on:
    • Learning history
    • Environment
    • Owner/dog relationships
    • Inter-household relationships with other animals
    • Motivation for and the function of the behaviour/s
    • Timelines of relevant events
    • Breed, motor patterns and drive
    • Related research and studies 
  • Approaches to behaviour modification based around:
  • Client’s capabilities
  • Compliance
  • Environmental changes
  • Veterinary support
  • Training
  • Modification protocols
  • Reports
  • Follow-up support
  • Guidance for the owners
