The function of emotion is to motivate behavior. That means it's very closely tied to learning. In fact, certain theories of emotion view emotions as reinforcements or punishments for behavior. In this webinar, learn what emotion is, the different viewpoints on how emotion influences behavior and how to harness this information to your benefit.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define emotion
  • Distinguish between emotion and mood
  • Discuss the impact of arousal on emotion
  • Explain what science tells us about emotion in non-human animals
  • Apply the information from the webinar to improve your training and behavior outcomes
