Living and Learning with Parrots:
The Fundamental Principles of Behavior
a seminar conducted by Dr. Suzanne Loftus, Psy.D.
242 E. 53 St, New York, NY
next to Quest Book Shop
(between 2nd & 3rd Avenues)
This workshop is an abbreviated version of Dr. Susan
Friedman's landmark LLP class designed to teach
participants how parrots learn (see
www.behaviorworks.org). This session will be taught by
Suzanne Loftus, Psy.D., who has worked closely with Dr.
Friedman for several years, disseminating best practices
to improve the lives of companion parrots.
The workshop will provide a general introduction to
applied behavior analysis, which is the science-based
training technology you can use to teach your parrot
successful companion behaviors and prevent and reduce
behavior problems. Participants will learn to analyze the
ways in which your interactions and environmental
arrangements lead to and maintain existing problem
behaviors and how to use the least intrusive, most
positive solutions to prevent and solve them.
Suzanne Loftus, Psy.D., is a licensed psychologist with 25
years of clinical experience. She has lived with and
learned from parrots for 10 years. In 2001 she took Dr.
Susan Friedman's Living and Learning with Parrots to learn
more about using Applied Behavior Analysis with her own
flock and became a Teaching Assistant for the class this
year. Dr. Loftus is also an active member of the Parrot
Behavior Analysis Solutions internet list, assisting with
list management and guiding caregiver's to solve parrot
behavior problems with cutting edge, science-based methods.
