As part of the Human Animal Bond Work Group, Mary B. Skene, LMSW, AASW and her canine therapy partner, Stryder, will be demonstrating strategies that can be utilized during therapy sessions with clients.

 

Mary is a private practice therapist currently working with clients aged 5 to 75 with her canine therapy partner, Stryder.  She attended University of Denver's Graduate School of Social Work where she earned her Animal-Assisted Social Work Certificate and has been practicing animal-assisted therapy since 2012.

 

No preregistration is required for this event. 
$0 for NASW members, $25 for future members. 


 

The Human-Animal Bond Group is excited to offer another hands-on training with special four-legged guest, Stryder, the certified professional therapy dog.  (We're sorry February didn't work out when we had to cancel due to snow!)

Attendees will receive 1.0 free CEU as we explore and demonstrate strategies popular in the animal-assisted therapies field both in individual and group settings.  Attendees should plan on participating and leaving with some dog fur souvenirs on their clothes!  (Lint rollers will be provided!)  Topics will include: group therapy discussion ideas and demonstration of tools as well as individual therapy games and strategies.  As always, we will have time to discuss ideas and answer any questions attendees may have about animal-assisted therapy practice!

 

There will also be an opportunity to provide a quick update on the Cross-Reporting Seminar happening in neighboring Ohio.  I was invited to attend their workshop next week in Toledo and learn more about the incredible work human- and animal-caregivers are doing to understand the link between human and animal violence and prevent its impacts on the vulnerable.  I will give you all a brief description of what that was like!
