Therapy Dogs in a School Setting
MetadataShow full item record
With the prevalence of mental health issues among students, schools are beginning to look at alternative therapeutic methods to reach a great number of them. Animal intervention programs have been shown to provide a variety of advantages, including improved social-emotional well-being, academic performance, and students' physical and psychological health. For some students, having a connection to someone or something is essential in increasing their general well-being, the feeling of self-worth, and academic performance. The purpose of this capstone is to review the literature on the benefits that therapy dogs in the classroom can have. Many children find having a dog at school exciting. It can ease students' concerns, reduce tension, and teach them new skills. I propose an animal-assisted therapeutic program run through the counselling office. It is hoped that through dogs in schools, students will be supported in academics, behavioural matters, and mental health concerns.
