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) and other animal welfare organisations.

The second in our 2020 series of reflective workshops highlights the challenges for vets in identifying and responding to instances of non-accidental injury and suspected abuse. Key findings from our new study researching veterinarians’ perspectives will also be presented, helping to provide guidance for practitioners.

Our workshops are specifically aimed at practitioners/professionals involved with child and/or animal welfare. This workshop is particularly suitable for those working in, or studying, veterinary science/medicine, as well as those working/researching in the area of ACES (adverse childhood experiences) or cruelty. It will be held at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Easter Bush, Midlothian, from 2 – 4pm.
