UPCOMING CLE "Helping or Hoarding: Strategies and Options for Intervention to Prevent Animal Cruelty"
November 28, 2017
Animal hoarding is a quiet epidemic in Florida that has serious negative consequences for animal and human welfare, creates significant property damage, and causes a substantial economic burden on government, mental health and animal organizations, and ultimately taxpayers. In this webinar, we will discuss the extent of this growing problem, and also hear from a practicing psychologist about some of the signs that mental health issues have caused or are contributing to the abusive conditions. Finally, we will review the legal theories and strategies for successful prosecution of abuse cases, and how attorneys and mental health professionals can better work together to achieve meaningful results in diagnosis, prevention, and treatment.
Presenters include: Gregg Morton, Chair, Animal Law Section; Dan Yuter, Assistant State Attorney, 12th Judicial Circuit; and Amy Wood, Psy.D. The program will run on December 6, 2017, from 12 Noon to 1 p.m., and will be worth one CLE credit.
