This workshop is part of our Advanced Clinical Training Series. We highly recommend taking our Introduction to Animal Assisted Therapy workshop in conjunction.
Veterans and their families have special needs - some times relating to trauma, some times related to transitions. The unique culture of veterans and their families make for unique issues. Animals can be a wonderful adjunct when working with vets and their families. The animals can help smooth the transition to the therapeutic process as well as provide for numerous opportunities for beneficial interventions.
