2021 Centers for the Human-Animal Bond Conference
« The 2021 Centers for the Human-Animal Bond (CHAB) conference is FREE and will be delivered virtually. Register today at http://purdue.vet/chab2021
It will provide a critical opportunity to bring together a diverse set of national and international academic Human-Animal Interaction centers and institutes. This conference will serve as a platform for interdisciplinary conversation with opportunities for the exchange and discussion of new ideas for future research in regards to animal-assisted interventions and additional dimensions of the human-animal bond.
The first CHAB conference was hosted in 2006 and in 2016 a 10-year follow-up conference continued the conversation. Both of these previous conferences resulted in special issues in peer-reviewed journals (2008 in JVME and 2018 in HAIB). The 2021 Conference will continue this legacy. Periodic and structured dialogue and coordination by these multi-disciplinary and geographically diverse human-animal interaction centers are critical to accelerating the advancement of the field of human-animal interaction and collaboration across disciplines. The advancement of the field will lead to further understanding regarding the physiological, psychological, and cultural implications of the human-animal bond.
This Virtual Conference is FREE and open to the public. Register today at http://purdue.vet/chab2021 »
