Title of Workshop: Veterinary Social Work

Number of Continuing Education Units Offered: Two (2)

Presenter(s) Name:  Dr. Bethanie Poe, LMSW

Biographical Information for Presenter: Dr. Bethanie A. Poe, LMSW graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Social Work with her PhD in 2016. Beginning her work with UT’s Veterinary Social Work as a master’s student, she returned to be a PhD fellow in the program. As such, she helped to develop the Veterinary Social Work Certificate Program for current Master of Social Work students as well as post graduates.  She began her work in family violence over ten years ago, working first in a domestic violence shelter before moving on to work in child protection. She then continued her work in the field at the Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic & Sexual Violence where she worked with batterer’s intervention programs. Dr. Poe is currently the Middle Tennessee Coordinator for UT’s Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee (H.A.B.I.T) program where she strives to bring animal assisted interventions to victims of violence, abuse, and neglect.

Workshop Description:

Non-human animals can play a variety of roles in people’s lives, whether it be friend, foe, or source of income.  The field of veterinary social work seeks to address the human needs at the intersection of human and animal relationships. As defined by University of Tennessee Veterinary Social Work, these needs fall into four broad categories: animal related grief and bereavement; animal assisted interactions, the link between human and animal violence; and compassion fatigue and conflict management. In this workshop, we will explore research on human animal interactions that are salient to ethical social work practice and discuss how to intervene on behalf of human beings in the context of human‐animal interactions through micro and macro levels in each of the four areas of veterinary social work.

 

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to identify the four areas of veterinary social work practice.

Participants will be able to describe why awareness of human-animal relationship is important in ethical social work practice.

Participants will be able to identify at least one micro and one macro level social work intervention for each area of veterinary social work practice.

 

Cost of Workshop:  NASW members, $0; Non-members $20; Students $0
