Animal Assisted Therapy

Focused on the Care of Children

Art and Play Assisted Therapy

Animals help improve motivation and engagement in therapy, which can result in a shorter recovery process and lower costs. Animals provide a sense of security and emotional support.  Trained therapy dogs offer  unconditional acceptance and positive regard. Animals in general can promote relaxation. Research has demonstrated that petting an animal can help lower blood pressure, heart rate, and increase oxytocin, a positive chemical our body produces.

Art and Play Assisted Therapy

Art and play assisted therapy for children can provide youth with an easier way to express themselves since children are more naturally artistic and creative. A young child is likely to be more comfortable initially expressing themselves through play, crayons and markers, or clay.  These researched based techniques assit children and adults in expressing emotions and feelings.
