Empathic Paws & K-12 Schools
Dr. Jessica Maricevic’s (2022) qualitative research suggests the use of animal-assisted therapies, like the use of therapy dogs in secondary settings, benefits not only the adolescent learner, but the organization as a whole.
Under Jessica’s guidance, Empathic Paws will collaboratively develop a researched-based plan for implementing an animal-assisted therapy and intervention program, like the integration of therapy dogs, to meet the identified needs of the learning organization. The Plan may include, but is not limited to:
School-Based Crisis Preparedness & Response
School Culture & Learning Environment
Social-Emotional Competency Development
