Certificate of Education in Animal Assisted Psychotherapy (CAAP)

This Certificate of Education in Animal Assisted Psychotherapy was developed to provide mental health providers and students an integrated learning experience preparing them for the professional and ethical practice of Animal Assisted Psychotherapy. With an optional combination of didactic and experiential learning, participants will learn the skills involved in providing not only counseling-based animal assisted interventions, but also more depth-oriented psychotherapy-based animal assisted interventions. Our goal is to provide participants with the foundation to continue to develop their own skills, as well as to further the growing field of AAP as an important specialty within the mental health field. The cost is $2,100. More details can be found on the "Online Course- CAAP" link.
