Dear Social Work Colleagues, 

You are invited to participate in a research study examining clinical social workers’ perceptions of training needed to include animals in practice, and the factors clinical social workers use in determining whether to include animals. We are seeking input from social work practitioners who provide direct services to clients. The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. Responses will be kept confidential. If you have any questions about this study, please feel free to contact me at the email below. Thank you! Link to online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5PV3LXT D
