Eva and Emelie
"The shared brain" Emelie and Eva live in Sweden and work together throught their collaboration Carpe Momentum
Emelie studied to be a high school teacher in English and Swedish at Lund University, together with further studies of both linguistics and children’s literature. She does work as a translator, from Swedish to English and vice versa, and from Norwegian/Danish to Swedish/English. She also writes fiction novels for both adults and children. Emelie enjoys many different sports and finding ways to breaking them down and teaching them to others, both adults and children.
Eva has a master’s degree in behavior analysis and is a board member of the Swedish Association for Behavior Analysis, and works to connect the communities - teaching behavior analysis to animal trainers, and teaching animal training strategies to behavior analysts working with people. She is also active in building a Fear Free™ veterinary care community in Scandinavia, and is the initiator and host of the Scandinavian CCC conference (where the three C:s stand for Choice, Control and Communication) .
E & E teach seminars on the general principles of behavior and learning, as well as sport specific seminars, and coach trainers in the art of structuring great training sessions regardless of the venue or the species. Their book Agility Right from the Start was published by Karen Pryor Clicker Training (KPCT) in 2010. The book outlines Emelie and Eva’s philosophy and structured approach to training, making it a worthy read not only for agility enthusiasts.
The Carpe Momentum colleagues offer consultations and workshops about applying positive reinforcement based strategies with human and nonhuman learners in all imaginable areas. They have experience with a wide variety of venues - from puppy classes to top level competition agility and obedience competition, and from domestic dogs to goats and giraffes, horses and high school kids. They are part of the Clicker Expo faculty, and they introduced TAGteach to Scandinavia already 2005 becoming the first TAGteach faculty in Europe. E&E have been working together since 1998!
