Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.

On April 20, 2016, Lisa presented the first of three webinars on animal abuse and children in collaboration with the Humane Society Academy. During “Animal Abuse and Children: An Important Risk Factor” Lisa discussed the role companion animals play in children’s lives and the growing body of research on the relationship between animal abuse and other types of antisocial behavior. Using case studies, she explained why all professionals dealing with children should be aware of animal abuse as a risk factor for children. The webinar was sponsored by the InMaat Foundation and pre-approved for 1 CE point of continuing education credit toward the Certified Animal Welfare Administrator credential.

“Animal Abuse and Children: An Important Risk Factor” was recorded and can be accessed free of charge.
