9:00 am - 3:00 pm    More Than Puppy Love: Understanding the Roles of Animals in Our Lives and in Therapy

Conference/Seminar / Animal, Dairy & Veterinary Sciences

Animals have played key roles in the lives of humans for centuries. From that human-animal bond, the field of animal-assisted interventions (AAI) has emerged as a multidisciplinary, complimentary form of therapy. Professionals and lay persons alike are combining forces to bring animal assisted interventions to a wide variety of populations, including those in hospitals, nursing homes, hospice centers, schools, and various clinical practice settings. This is a seminar and continuing education opportunity for veterinarians, medical and mental health professionals, educators, students and community members. Four CEUs are available through The National Association of Social Workers Utah Chapter, Utah Psychological Association, and the Utah Veterinary Medicine Association. The registration fee is $25 for the general public and $125 for professionals receiving continuing education credit. Lunch is provided.
