ETHICAL ANIMAL USE COURSE

An introduction course in preparation for the study of Animal Assisted Therapy.

ELISTA Education is pleased to be able to offer a short introductory course entitled ‘Ethical Animal Use’. This two month course is predominantly designed for individuals working in social care, education, nursing care or other professions, who have limited animal related skill and knowledge, but are interested in utilising animals in a therapeutic manner for others in their care.

This short home study course specifically concentrates on how perceptions of animals by social and cultural groups can differ; how animals came to be domesticated and utilised by humans, general and specific animal care, handling, husbandry, communication and welfare, as well as an introduction to the role of animals as ‘therapists’, ‘teachers’ and ‘healers’.

This course runs over two months as a home study programme.
Participants are required to conduct some practical and theoretical research as part of the module tasks.

This course can be started anytime, but must be completed by 31st July in order to progress to the Animal Assisted Therapy course the following September.

Course Fee:

€250. This course can be used as an entry onto the ELISTA Education Animal Assisted Therapy Progression Course (subject to availability).

**This course is available as a two day training course, dates: 29th May and 25th June 2016 or two module home study programme for Commencement of Animal Assisted Therapy Progression Course September 2016**
