“Know Your Enemy.” This webinar zooms out from our day to day fight against the use of aversives in dog training to the broader context of the use of aversives by humans on other humans. It will survey the use of corporal punishment over recorded human history, where we currently stand, and outline the research on the adaptive significance of the human tendency to use punishment. Understanding the human tendency to punish will help us combat it. Learning Objectives Appreciation of the pervasiveness of the use of aversive stimuli by humans and its various contexts Knowledge of the arc over time of the prevalence of use of corporal punishment in human culture Recognition of the parallel attitudes regarding corporal punishment use on family members to those we in the force-free training movement experience Improved understanding of the evolutionary roots of punishment
