Developing policies and practices related to dealing with animal abuse is important both for animal welfare considerations and because of the empirically established co-occurrence—the “link”—between animal abuse and human violence. The University of Connecticut School of Social Work, in collaboration with the UConn Law School and the Animals & Society Institute (ASI) are presenting two webinars on the Assessment and Treatment of Animal Abuse. Presented by ASI’s Board President, Kenneth Shapiro, the evening webinars, March 4 and 11, 2021, are designed for human service professionals, forensic psychologists and criminal justice personnel. The two sessions will explore the identification, assessment and treatment of animal cruelty offenders, and will provide 1.5 CECs for participants. Find our more here.
