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 third in our 2020 series of reflective workshops is designed specifically to help the police, particularly First Responders, and those involved in the juvenile justice system, to reflect on the issues surrounding childhood animal cruelty. It will consider how we might effectively respond to children and young people who have harmed animals.

Our workshops 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). This workshop is particularly geared towards those working in the police force or juvenile justice system. It may also be of interest to those working/researching in the area of ACES (adverse childhood experiences) or cruelty. The venue is to be confirmed but will take place in Edinburgh from 2 – 4pm.
