The animal law movement has, for the most part, been successful in showing society that animal cruelty is a problem. Now, a dynamic and evolving area of focus is creating targeted criminal justice outcomes to better help animal victims, heal individuals who committed cruelty, prevent future crimes against animals, and build healthier and more resilient communities. This webinar will discuss innovative work that identifies alternatives to traditional sentencing practices, which appropriately and accurately address underlying causes of animal cruelty, provide fairness to all parties involved in animal cruelty, and that work to curb the rate of future cruelty. Specifically, this webinar will discuss the role trauma can play as an underlying cause to cruelty, as well as methods to address and heal such trauma so it does not perpetuate animal cruelty in the future.
