 Purpose and Objectives:

This LLP Caregiver course is designed to teach participants how parrots learn. The focus is on analyzing the ways in which the caregiver’s interactions and environmental arrangements maintain existing problem behaviors and how more adaptive behaviors can be taught through the use of positive reinforcement. By understanding the fundamental principles of learning and behavior and the associated teaching technology, caregivers can facilitate successful parrot behaviors for lasting companionship.
