SUSAN G. FRIEDMAN
PhD in Psychology
Susan G. Friedman, Ph.D., is a faculty member in the Department of Psychology at Utah State University. She has helped pioneer the cross-species application of behavior analysis to animals, using the same humane philosophy and scientifically sound teaching technology that has been so effective with human learners. She has written chapters in three veterinary texts, and her popular magazine articles have been translated into 11 languages (www.behaviorworks.org). Susan also blogs for Psychology Today (www.psychologytoday.com).
Susan has given seminars on learning and behavior around the world (Australia, Botswana, Canada, England, Holland, Ireland, Israel, France, New Zealand, and Sweden); at zoo facilities (Assiniboine Zoo, Audubon Zoo, Cheyenne Mt. Zoo, Dallas Zoo, Denver Zoo, Houston Zoo, London Zoo and San Diego Zoo); and conferences (International Association for Aquarium Animal Medicine, the Association of Avian Veterinarians, the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria, Moorpark College’s Exotic Animal Training, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, and the San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers). This year, she was the Keynote Speaker at Karen Pryor’s Clicker Expos, and the upcoming International Marine Animal Trainer’s Association (IMATA). Susan was a core member of the now retired US Fish and Wildlife Condor Recovery Team and has been nominated for the Media Award given by the International Association of Behavior Analysis, for disseminating the essential tools people need to empower and enrich the lives of all learners.
