Animal-Assisted Interventions: Integrate Animals to Enhance Treatment in Clinical Practice

Category: Seminar
Description:


Join animal-assisted expert Brooke Wimer, MOT, OTR/L, and learn how incorporating animals into your professional activities can greatly improve client outcomes in a surprisingly broad range of areas, including:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety levels and lower blood pressure
  • Lessen feelings of loneliness and poor self-esteem in those with trauma and anxiety
  • Treat symptoms in people dealing with depression and PTSD
  • Develop empathy in those with conduct disorder and antisocial personality disorder
  • Improve physical function in people recovering from a stroke
  • Improve reading and comprehension in children with learning disabilities
  • And more!

You will receive specific examples of animal-assisted therapeutic goals in a variety of functional areas. You will develop a toolbox of animal-assisted interventions and animal-focused treatments you can employ the very next day. This seminar also includes the latest research outcomes and a solid foundational knowledge about the human-animal emotional bond. You will also discover very practical information and resources to help you develop programming and implement your own animal-assisted interventions.
