Presenter Bio: Anne is current chair of the APBC and has been a practising member for over 30 years. She is also an Honorary member of TCBTS. She was Programme Director of the MSc in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling at University of Southampton. This was the first course in this area in Europe and ran from 1994-2014. She continues to teach on various courses related to training and behaviour counselling both in the UK and abroad, on areas including on behaviour counselling skills and history taking.  Her aim in her teaching is to facilitate people to become objective, critical thinkers who can creatively and appropriately apply knowledge to solving problems.

Presentation Details: In this presentation we will revisit both why we take a history and what it involves and some tips of how we can ensure we gain as full history as possible. The aim of history taking is to gain information from all involved, both human and non-human, and the environment both past and current, and consideration of the future. An accurate a history as possible is essential for an accurate behavioural diagnosis to be made. An accurate behavioural diagnosis is essential to the development of a behaviour modification programme that is appropriate for the animal and its humans in their circumstances. History taking is a skill that involves observational skills, questioning and listening skills, ‘experimental’, synthesis and analytical skills. All of which need employing pretty much simultaneously! Due to time constraints the talk will touch on, but only very briefly, how history taking links to differential diagnosis and the development of a suitable behaviour modification plan.
