Social Emotional Learning
I use the Pawsitive Works curriculum with a varied and challenging population. The mix of video, lessons introduced through the lens of a dog and overall layout makes this interesting, engaging and accessible to the students. It provides an excellent springboard for discussion and processing life issues. Mental Health Clinician, Juvenile Detention
I can’t explain it any other way then to say it’s absolutely magical. The dogs reduce the feeling of vulnerability in these individuals who can then begin trusting and exploring life changing options. Canine Assisted Learning Class Facilitator
The dogs offer a source of comfort for these kids. The dogs often mirror what a lot of these kids experience. They have felt lonely and unwanted and know that these dogs can relate. They learn patience, empathy and mindfulness in a way that is empowering to them.
