#Science2stable #EIS2019 Event Coverage: Human Behaviour Change, for Animals

"By understanding why humans do the things they do, and what drives them to change, we can make the world a better place for animals."
Today on hoofbeats, we are bringing you a presentation made by Debbie Busby at the 4th annual Equine Industry Symposium, recorded as voice memo on a volunteer's phone.

Debbie holds a first class BSc (Hons) in Psychology and an MSc with distinction in Applied Animal Behaviour and Welfare and is a graduate member of the British Psychological Society, and is co-author of a book called ‘Equine Behaviour in Mind: Applying Behavioural Science to the Way We Keep, Work and Care for Horses’
In this 55 min segment, you'll hear the process of human behaviour change and how to introduce it.  As well as tools and models for putting principles into practice.

She reminds us that confrontation is the biggest predictor of FAILURE to change, while an empathetic approach is the biggest predictor of SUCCESS of change.
