There is a rapidly growing movement to incorporate animals as part of the therapeutic setting. Students will learn about the difference between animal assisted activities, therapy and education (AAA/T/E), working animals and assistance animals. The course will cover working with animals and children, adults, the elderly, and the disabled in various settings including hospitals, nursing homes, schools and prisons. We will also review what is required to start and run a safe and effective program.
