    With Niki Tudge

    This is a  great program if you work with clients, peers or have associates. We all experience anger and those who can manage it are better able to practice non-violent communication and engage and educate others.

    Join Niki Tudge for this 90 minute  webinar on Anger Management.

    Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” We would like to add a third item to his list: anger. Anger can be an incredibly damaging force, costing people their jobs, personal relationships, and even their lives when it gets out of hand. However, since everyone experiences anger, it is important to have constructive approaches to manage it effectively. 

    This workshop will help teach participants how to identify their anger triggers and what to do when their angry.

    Workshop Objectives

    By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

    • Understand anger dynamics in terms of the anger cycle and the fight or flight theory.
    • Know common anger myths and their factual refutations.
    • Know the helpful and unhelpful ways of dealing with anger.
    • Know techniques in controlling anger, particular reading anger warning signs, using coping thoughts, exercising relaxation techniques and blowing off steam.

    • Know tips in identifying the problem.

    Webinar Description

    By building a positive conditioned response to a particular implement and following a good desensitisation plan, trainers can even help dogs who are fearful about nail care. Moreover, trainers can coach owners through the process effectively, giving them the opportunity to create a lifetime of cooperative care.
    We'll cover why DS is often necessary and how to walk through the process effectively, by being mindful of body language and working at the dog's pace.
    We'll also cover nail and paw anatomy, so that even those most shy about nail care can become comfortable with it!

     Learning Objectives

    • Gain an understanding of why nail care can be so difficult for some dogs
    • Learn why the +CER building process is so important to the process
    • Walk through a desensitization process, and be able to teach clients how to do the same
    • Gain an understanding of paw and nail anatomy and why nail maintenance is so important to dogs' health
