Category: Seminar

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:

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.
