COVID-19 has changed many aspects of our lives - the way we live, work and interact with others. For many people delivering animal-assisted interventions, the pandemic has had a great impact on their programmes and new ways of thinking and practice have emerged.
In this webinar, practitioners from different parts of the world share their experiences, insights and innovative approaches, showing us ways to keep humans and animals safe when delivering animal-assisted interventions in different contexts.
