About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Professional behavior consulting has structure, detail, planning, and well-thought out application of behavior modification principles, and it is these structures that provide added value and improved case resolution to clients. Behavior work is as much (or more) about the human clients - addressing family dynamics, building committment to behavior modification plans, and dealing with the emotions that run high in aggression cases. And there's a heck of a lot of paper, if you're doing it right.
Being competent in sound behavior modification techniques is essential to working with aggression cases - but it is not enough! Organizational and interpersonal skills are just as important as "training chops." This book alone will not give you the breadth of knowledge and skills needed to competently work aggression cases (no book will), but it will help you to honestly assess when you are prepared to do so, and equip you to do a competent and professional job when you are ready. It will also help keep you and others safe.
Thank you Nicole, for helping me along my journey from trainer to behavior consultant. I am so glad this book was available to help me learn to be the best consultant I can be (and still learning). My clients thank you too.
A behavior consultant's bookshelf just cannot have "too many" Nicole Wilde books.

Nicole holds nothing back as she literally walks with her readers through practical handling techniques, safety considerations, information on equipment while sharing her own personal experiences with cases. Also included is a comprehensive resource directory for forms, training products and more. A top-notch must-have book!
