Winston is our baby here at BayPsych. He is only a couple of months old, but in about 2 – 3 years he will complete his training In Animal Assisted Interventions (AAI) and be ready to join the team in the provision of animal assisted therapy (AAT) here at BayPsych.
But for now – he is just being a regular pup, meeting his milestones, growing, playing, being part of a family and living his best life.
Eventually, when he graduates, Winston will assist in the therapeutic process of Animal Assisted Interventions (AAI) where he will work in conjunction with a psychologist to support clients as they work to reach their therapeutic goals. AAI is often used to assist in the treatment of many mental health issues, including, but not limited to:
- Emotional regulation
- Behaviour disorders (ADHD & ODD)
- Anxiety (Generalised, Social Anxiety and Separation)
- Social Skills and Empathy training
- Anger management
- Grief and loss
