Join us to find out more about a range of creative approaches to working with children, including Play Therapy, Animal Assisted Interventions, and Animal Assisted Play Therapy.

We are delighted to be hosting the internationally renowned Dr Risë Van Fleet and Tracie Faa-Thompson, founders of the International Institute for Animal Assisted Play Therapy. Learn about excellent practice and acquire an insight into Animal Assisted Play Therapy involving a range of animals through their interactive workshops (6 hours over 2 days).
