This training event will award 2 contact hours for LMSW and LCSW with the NYSED State Board for Social Work and 2 contact hour for LMHC and LMFT with the NYSED State Board for Mental Health Practitioners.

Children and animals have a natural affinity for one another. Evidence shows that both derive many benefits from their interactions. The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum draws on this resiliency research, social and emotional learning, and human-animal interaction to guide their program, which has two goals: enhancing children’s resilience and social and emotional competence and promoting awareness of the desirability of shelter pets (or “Mutt-i-grees”).

This presentation will outline the basics of the Mutt-i-gree Curriculum itself, how and why it works, and the importance of its implementation.

Jayne Vitale, Director, Education and Youth Programs, Mutt-i-grees Curriculum
