CSCSW Salon: "Animal Assisted Therapy for Social Workers", with MacKenzie McGuire, LCSW, AASW

Summary:

 Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) and the Human-Animal Connection is a deep and innovate way to engage and work with clients. In this salon presentation, participants will explore creativity in animal assisted interventions, and how social workers can use the human-animal connection to tap into humans’ innate biophilia (the human tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life, including animals). Ethical considerations when practicing AAT will also be discussed. MacKenzie will present case studies, as well as use experiential didactic methods with one of her therapy dogs, who will be present.

Objectives:

  1. To be able to identify AAT interventions using a psychodynamic lens
  2. Ethics of AAT
  3. How AAT can fit in with the One Health / Biophilia model
