A Webinair with Ryan Cartlidge.

Something - as Positive Reinforcement based dog/animal trainers - we can sometimes find challenging is processing both our emotions & thought processes when we see others using aversives.
Consequently, this live event will offer Ryan Cartlidge’s contributions to this challenge - based on his experience practically applying the tools from ‘crucial conversations’ over the last decade;
* Conversation skills to help engage with someone who doesn’t necessarily know they’re using (what we might label as) aversives. **
In the live class Ryan will share a slide presentation as well as [with the help of a volunteer] work through an example in real time (i.e.live)!
And to make it as authentic as possible - Ryan, won’t know what the example is until we’re live in the class on the day! I.e he will find out at exactly the same time as you do!
We look forward to seeing you live with us!
** Aversive = Something our animals given a choice would avoid/move away from.
