Using animal-assisted therapy in work with children and young people, a 2 day workshop presented by Nikki Evans.

Animal assisted therapy involves engaging the services of a suitable animal to facilitate therapeutic processes in interventions with people. This method is frequently used with children and older people, and these sessions will address its usefulness for young people.

The first lecture and workshop will include an introduction to the principles and methodology of animal assisted therapy. The second lecture and workshop will review practical issues, as well as provide opportunities to practice working with animals throughout the day.

Presented as a part of the University of Canterbury's Platform Arts Festival 2010, a dynamic 11 day extravaganza of art, lectures, theatre, music and film.
