The Human Animal Bond: Social Work at the Intersection of the Human and Animal Relationship

NASW Connecticut

9:30-11:30 a.m.

Understanding the importance of a human-animal bond and the roles animals can play in our lives for comfort, emotional support, and service is at the heart of this workshop.

The conversation will include specific terminology, will touch on various state and national policies and laws, and will review what communities and individuals can do to get involved and support the human animal bond.

Discussion will also include the emergent and growing practice of veterinary social work and the positive interventions as well as the stressors that are unique to working in this new field. Guidelines for social workers who need to advocate, support, and write letters for clients will be included in the discussion.
