OJJDP & NDAA Webinar to discuss co-occurrence of animal abuse and child abuse on January 28th at 2pmET

17 Jan 2014 3:30 PM | Adrienne Hoffman-Lewis (Administrator)
Adapted: On January 28, 2014, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. ET, OJJDP, in collaboration with the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA), will present "When the Abuse of Animals Co-Occurs With Child Abuse." Animal abuse is often a symptom of other violence in the home, and children who witness it may engage in aggressive behavior toward people and animals.

This Webinar will focus on the link between animal cruelty and child abuse and highlight intervention strategies, including team responses, talking with children about their experiences with animals, animal-assisted activities to help maltreated children who have witnessed animal abuse, and programs to assist family members with animals to flee abusive homes and find safety.
