Forensic Animal Maltreatment Evaluations (FAME) and the Animal Abuse Risk Assessment Tool (AARAT)

Past event

Presented by: Philip Tedeschi, Executive Director of the Institute for Human-Animal Connection & Clinical Professor at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work

Crimes against animals reflect a wide array of behaviors, level of seriousness, actions harmful to animals and can also be omission of care. The underlying causative factors are also diverse. Despite this diversity and in many ways due to the array of behaviors on the continuum of criminal concern, we need to understand with some accuracy what has occurred and why. At the Institute for Human-Animal Connection we have been conducting comprehensive Forensic Animal Maltreatment Evaluations in partnership with the Denver FIRST Clinic at the Graduate School of Professional Psychology in order to better identify the underlying causes of animal cruelty and to provide recommendations for treatment and supervision on a case by case basis. This webinar will discuss the need for these specialized evaluations, the structure of the FAME and information on the newly developed AARAT.
