Description

Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) is a unique and powerful therapeutic approach that harnesses the positive effect of human-animal interactions.

However, it is more than bringing your pet to work. It requires a complex set of skills, knowledge, and considerations to ensure the safe and effective integration of animals into therapy – ultimately to achieve successful client outcomes.

Join Tara Moser, LCSW, and Certified Animal Assisted Intervention Specialist, as she teaches you how to confidently integrate AAT interventions that produce results even at the very first session! You’ll learn how to:

  • Build positive attachment and trust with clients
  • Reduce anxiety levels and induce a sense of relaxation
  • Support co-regulation between client and animal
  • Promote self-control and impulse management
  • Develop self-awareness, compassion, and empathy
  • Create strong social-emotional communication skills

But that’s not all, you’ll also learn to keep everyone safe, including how to:

  • Detect signs of stress in animal’s and client’s body language
  • Select animals that are well-suited for the client’s specific situation
  • Align your client’s therapy goals to appropriate AAT interventions
  • Integrate AAT with modalities you already use
  • Know when to and when not to include animals in therapy
  • Determine best practices for in-person vs telehealth
  • And so much more!

Through case studies, video demonstration and dynamic discussion you will leave this program with the skills and confidence to integrate dogs, cats and various other animals into your practice!
