Profile picture for Allison White

Allison White

Allison is a licensed clinical social worker and Veterinary Social Worker who has been working in the mental health field for over 28 years. She has been involved in programs that value the human-animal connection including participating in animal-assisted therapy, obedience, agility, conformation, herding and field work with her dogs. When her dogs encountered sports-related injuries, she was introduced to the field of canine rehabilitation and sport’s medicine. When dogs faced chronic health issues, Allison, too, suffered from Compassion Fatigue, which can occur when taking care of loved ones, including animals as well as people. This led Allison to complete extensive training in Compassion Fatigue and then go on to present this information for the benefit of helping others in the health care environment and animal caregivers.
Allison’s passion has been to recognize this human-animal bond and what we can learn from animals, which improves our own quality of life by allowing us to experience their unconditional love, devotion and intelligence. We can all learn from the animals.
