2023 AAPT Conference



February 20-21, 2023 ~ BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

On February 20-21 (Monday-Tuesday), we will hold our third annual Animal Assisted Play Therapy™ conference! It will be held online, with 6 presentations each day for a total of 12 distance learning CE credits. The full schedule is in this flyer.

Presentations will be prerecorded, although the presenters will be available live for the question-and-answer periods immediately following their presentations. If you register for the conference, you will have access to the presentations afterwards as well. 

All workshop presenters are Certified Therapists, Supervisors, and Instructors in AAPT or those who are nearing those certifications. They will share their experiences and approaches using AAPT with a variety of species and client goal areas. This year, presenters join us from the UK and throughout the USA. AAPT research will also be featured.

AAPT emphasizes relationships and animal well-being throughout the therapy process. The workshops are designed to show AAPT in practical terms. Most will feature a 40-minute presentation and videos, along with a short discussion period. 

The types of presentations offered this year include multiple clinical applications, ethics and welfare, research, different species, puppy socialization to canine retirement, and the importance of relationship in AAPT.

An outline of the schedule with workshop titles and presenters is followed by more detailed information about each in the conference brochure. If you need continuing education credits, please be sure to read our CE statement. CE is available only for those who register for it (an additional fee), complete an assessment, submit a satisfaction survey, and attend the full conference. Learning objectives are listed at the end. 

Access to recordings of the presentations will be made available to those who register for the conference prior to February 19.
