Description

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT - WITH A DIFFERENCE


WAGS is so much more than your average dog therapy program.

It is one of the most popular and effective early intervention programs for young people in the New England. And now, we are fast becoming the most effective way to grow skills in professional teams that work in communities.

WAGS training is challenging,

at times confronting,

and always inspiring and enlightening.

We have a strong history of capacity building in schools, community organisations, Child Protection and Juvenile Justice teams, Out of Home Care staff, AOD rehabilitation teams and youth work organisations.

This training will offer participants the opportunity to practice new techniques as well as explore well established techniques in a safe environment and through an entirely unique lens: through the eyes of an experienced therapy dog.

Dogs provide us with an accurate and up to the minute reflection of our best selves. Their real time, immediate feedback to social cues makes them an invaluable training tool for people who work with people. Dogs provide an engaging and sheltered setting for exploring our responses challenging behaviours.

  • Use the dog as a spring board into strategies that make rapid and meaningful connections with others.

  • Allow the dogs to guide you in developing authentic leadership behaviours that create genuinely safe spaces for clients.

  • Use a trauma-informed lens to appropriately interpret and respond to challenging behaviours and strong emotions with a dog who can provide you with an immediate report card.
