The Assessment and Treatment of Animal Abuse

March 4 & 11, 2021



The UConn School of Social Work, in collaboration with the UConn Law School and the Animals and Society Institute present two webinars on the Assessment and Treatment of Animal Abuse

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. Early intervention is key. These webinars will explore the identification, assessment and treatment of animal cruelty offenders.  The programs are appropriate for human service professionals, forensic psychologists and criminal justice personnel.

Fees for each webinar:

$30 – UConn SSW Alumni and Current Field Instructors
$35 – All Others
