When working complex aggression cases, there are many potential factors that can impact the probability of a positive prognosis. Success involves the behavior consultant’s ability to recognize, separate, rate, and address these factors. This webinar leads participants through an assessment rating process to determine prognosis then rethink plans to increase likelihood of success.

This course will help you to:
• Explain the elements that make an aggression case complex
• Give a basic overview of skills necessary to take on complex cases
• Plan steps to completing an assessment and prognosis
• Identify complications you may face and how to deal with them (case study)

In 2018, Laurie began deploying in a lead role with the ASPCA’s Behavior Services Team and now also collaborates with the National Field Response Team. In 2019, Laurie opened Dogs Rock! Vermont, a LIMA-based daycare and training facility in Essex Jct, VT.
