  Animal Facilitated Therapy Networking Resources and Email discussion lists

These lists are very helpful in networking. Most lists are intended for warm and friendly conversation for sharing information and experiences. They work best when people contribute, even those who are new. While people will offer advice it will be of better quality if you let them get to know you.

Email discussion lists vary a lot in their policies, in how to subscribe, and in how to unsubscribe. In some cases you will be using a list server machine that manages the email. Please; Follow instructions exactly or the list server machine won't understand you. When you subscribe, unsubscribe or try to change your mail settings don't include anything except the commands. Send nice notes later. :-) When you sign up you will get a welcome message that gives instructions for unsubscribing, postponing mail, and making other kinds of changes to your mail settings. Keep those instructions.

This is a group specifically for people practicing AAT in a clinical setting. Topics include national meetings, insurance, references, theories of practice, etc. (Note, this is not the place to start for "meet and greet" style visits (the style Oso and I do). This is directed to visits that are tailored to meet the needs of particular individuals with specific goals in mind).
