Farm & Small Animal Assisted Interventions
There is a growing body of research to support working with animals to help people. As there are many benefits to this medium of therapy it is becoming a very popular therapeutic alternative.
This certification process has been developed to meet the growing demand from professionals to receive a certificate for their training in Animal Assisted Interventions. Many professionals are either already partnering with their animals to deliver therapeutic services or interested in doing so.
Some aspects of this certification process were modeled after the Equine Facilitated Wellness - Canada (EFW-CAN) certification. Dreamcatcher™ wishes to extend thanks to this group for permission to utilize their well-developed certification process for working with equines in professional practice as a model for this certificate in Animal Assisted Therapy and Wellness.
