Caar (Children, Adolescents, and Animals Research) is a specialist research group within the Centre for Applied Developmental Psychology in the School of Health in Social Science, University of Edinburgh. We work closely with the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA).
We are holding two reflective workshops in 2019. These are specifically aimed at practitioners/ professionals involved with child and/or animal welfare (animal welfare education, science education, teaching, social work, social care, police, juvenile justice, health). These will be held at the University of Edinburgh from 2 – 4.30pm.
Our first workshop is on the 26th April and will examine children's relationships with different types of companion animal. This second workshop will focus on the work we have undertaken in collaboration with the Scottish SPCA in order to prevent animal cruelty. We will highlight what works well within universal education programmes (those provided to classes of children in schools). Subsequently, we will focus on our more recent targeted interventions for specific groups of children, including those who are cruel to animals (specifically looking at the ‘Animal Guardians’ programme), and children with learning disabilities.
The workshop format will comprise an introduction to our work, brief summaries of key findings, and focused opportunities to discuss and reflect on personal experience and the practical relevance of the research. It will conclude with a summary of key learning points/implications.
