Animal-Assisted Interventions: Incorporating Animals in Therapeutic Goals & Treatment

Category: Seminar

Are you in need of an effective intervention to help build rapport with your clients who otherwise take many sessions to trust you and feel safe before disclosing? Animals can bridge the trust gap and accelerate the therapeutic alliance.

Join Christina Strayer, Ed.D., LPC, CCTP, AAT, DCC, and learn animal-assisted therapy activities and interventions that produce amazing results for your clients diagnosed with attachment disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, conduct disorder, ADHD and autism. You will receive specific examples of animal-assisted therapeutic goals and strategies to:
Build social interaction, feelings of safety, security and trust
Decrease hyperarousal, impulse control and dysregulation
Empower self-efficacy and quality of life
Promote motivation and goal setting
Increase positive communication skills and empathy
This seminar also includes the latest research outcomes, solid foundational knowledge about the human-animal emotional bond and up-to-date information about relevant laws. You will also discover very practical information and resources to help you implement your own animal-assisted interventions.
