In this talk, Dr. Taft, Professor of Psychiatry and anti-violence expert, applies principles and methods from the field of clinical psychology to enhance the potential impact of the animal advocacy efforts of individuals and groups. Practical tips and strategies for talking to friends, family members, and others are also discussed, with illustrative examples given.

He is an internationally recognized researcher in the area of violence prevention and winner of prestigious awards for his work from the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies; the Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma; and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He has developed the only domestic violence prevention programs demonstrated effective for military populations via randomized controlled trials and has been assisting in implementing them across the Veterans Health Administration system and within the Department of Defense.
