Training 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Training Description

Animal Assisted Therapy and or Intervention is a training for clinicians who are interested in or are curious about adding a live animal to their clinical practice.  Licensed therapists do not need to be animal trained experts to attend the conference training. Participants will have a more enlightened understanding of why adding a live animal to their practice is beneficial professionally and personally.  They will be better informed as to whether adding live animals is the right choice for their practice and populations they serve.  

We will have a unique opportunity to experience a hands-on AAI mock session.  There will be multiple opportunities within the presentation to better understand the human-animal bond non-anthropomorphic.  

We will learn of the different trainings and different ways clinicians use live animals in their sessions.  There will be a short portion showcasing how clinicians can pair other modalities like EMDR, Sand Tray and Play Therapy using live animals.


There will be research support provided showing what and how animals are changing the therapeutic process.

And finally, we will discuss how to apply the knowledge we learned to build a more intriguing program or at least one that gives future and current clients counseling options in order to broaden your case load.
