The Core Affect Space Model of Emotions
Presented by Karolina Westlund
Animals’ moods and emotional states impact their perception, physiology, and behaviour. In this webinar, I will discuss the Core Affect Space model of emotions and how it may be useful to pet guardians and animal professionals.
A full understanding of emotions can help us develop better relationships to our animals, reduce stress and improve their welfare.

- Assessing mood states
- How moods affect behaviour
