In addition, the lessons with the participation of psychotherapist were given to the parents.
“The main massage we wanted to give to these families, who encountered difficulties. It is the strengthening of family values by way of formation of leisure time and perception of environment. By acquainting them with different species of animal, with their peculiarities, we not only broaden their outlook, but also put the fundamentals of tolerant attitude to the animal world, as well as to each other and to other people,” the head of the psychological service of the Centre for Psychosocial Rehabilitation Tetiana Aliieva. “We acquainted our visitors with the animal-assisted therapy, equine-assisted therapy, canis-therapy. An interesting peculiarity of the meeting was the acquaintance with the work aimed at the rescue of bats. Their participants were able to assess the work of the Bat Rehabilitation Center. Perhaps, in the future, they will express the wish to become its volunteers.”
