CAAWT Online Group Class

Constructional Aggression Treatment

Hello, this is Sean and Maasa! We are excited to welcome you to our Constructional Aggression Treatment group class! This group class is ideal for anyone concerned with fearful and aggressive behaviors that the dog you work and live with engages in or that just wants to learn more about these behaviors. This class is also ideal if you would like to learn more about Constructional Aggression Treatment. Please join us to learn how to shape fearful and aggressive behaviors into friendly interaction!

**Constructional Approach to Animal Welfare and Training is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All the profits from the group classes will fund free programs that CAAWT offers for individuals and facilities that oversee the care of animals. For every third registration, CAAWT can provide one free spot for someone in need! 

⚫︎ Class Description

In this group class, we will talk about the underlying philosophy of the Constructional Approach, the functional analysis of fearful and aggressive behaviors, ways to conduct behavior assessment, and the Constructional Aggression Treatment program (Rosales-Ruiz, 2021). If you currently have a client who engages in aggressive/fearful behaviors, you can apply and implement the CAT procedure, get feedback, and continue revising the program toward your goals!


⚫︎ Learning Objectives 

  • Describe what differentiates the Constructional Approach from the Pathological Approach 

  • Given various scenarios, describe how to conduct a behavior assessment

  • Describe eight steps of the CAT program

  • Given scenarios, describe what a decoy dog/human should do based on the behaviors of the training dog

  • If interested, apply and implement the CAT procedure and receive feedback and continue revising the program toward your goals
