Event description
Are you in the mental health or education field and thinking of integrating animal assisted therapy (AAT) into your practice? Maybe you're a caregiver who wants to know more about what AAT is and how it can possibly help your child? Interested in exploring if an emotional support animal is right for your family?



Adding animals to your practice, or family, adds cost and complication, but the benefits can be astounding: teens who can’t or won’t engage in traditional approaches show up and flourish; kids who seem unreachable develop empathy and compassion; and the animals present ways for youth to explore, both experientially and ‘one step removed’, areas of need or pain which they may not be ready or able to touch directly.



This workshop will introduce you to the growing field of animal assisted therapy and how it relates to treating children. Attendees will explore the benefits from engaging with animals, and how practitioners integrate animals into their practices in an ethical way-- for both children and the animals.



PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. BOOK YOUR TICKET NOW >>>>>>>>>>
