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! 

Currently, the registration for the Constructional Aggression Treatment group class is closed. When we do another group class in the future, please join us! We will announce it on our website and our social media!

⚫︎ 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).
