In responding to animal cruelty, both legal professionals and mental health clinicians are often frustrated by challenges involved in identifying why the crime took place and how to reduce the likelihood of future cruelty by addressing those underlying factors – all while meeting the needs of animal victims.

In response, the Animal Legal Defense Fund and the University of Denver’s Institute for Human-Animal Connection have developed a certification program that—by surfacing the interests of animal victims—facilitates assessing causative factors on a case-by-case basis, and translating those to targeted outcomes responsive to the needs of animal victims, defendants, and their communities.

Join two of the program architects—ALDF Managing Attorney David B. Rosengard and ALDF Criminal Justice Fellow Jessica Chapman—as they discuss conundrums implicated by overlapping legal and mental health approaches to addressing animal maltreatment, and how grappling with those within a One Health framework illuminates a path towards a better understanding of risk, a more complete remediation for those harmed, and ultimately more resilient individuals and communities.
