ASI’s Lisa Lunghofer will be giving three webinars on animal abuse and children, in conjunction with Humane Society Academy. This three-part webinar series is intended for professionals from a range of disciplines who work with children and youth, including social workers, attorneys, probation officers, judges, school counselors, teachers, child care providers, and community members.
In the third webinar, we will describe and discuss the range of intervention resources available for children who have witnessed, engaged in, or are at risk of engaging in animal abuse. These include psychological intervention using the AniCare Child approach and psycho-education programs such as the Children and Animals Together (CAT) Assessment and Treatment Program. We will also discuss prevention programs for children who are at risk of engaging in animal abuse.
