Enhancing Secondary School Counseling with a Therapeutic Dog
Daughhetee, Charlotte; Stalls, Laura; Spencer, M. E.
Alabama Counseling Association Journal, v32 n1 p47-55 Spr 2006
Animals are increasingly being used for emotional support and therapeutic intervention in a variety of settings including, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and prisons. Therapeutic animals can bring comfort to the ill, bereaved or lonely, and there are indications that owning a pet may positively influence an individual's health and well-being. Through anecdotes, the authors describe the use of a dog to facilitate counseling services in a secondary school counseling program.
