- Discuss animal welfare - working with them in therapy.
- Learn about the theory behind the approach.
- Learn AAT techniques for different client groups.
The course will be spread over three months - one day a month for three months - and will be structured to look at AAT in counselling with considerations for the client, practitioner and therapy animal.
