Animals in the classroom provide hands-on experience

Dogs, horses, and guinea pigs were part of the learning experience for students in the Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus classrooms this summer. Animals have long been associated with helping people. For example, dogs have traditionally been called “man’s best friend.” But, today the use of therapy animals has become more integrated into mainstream healthcare. Recognizing this societal shift in the field of healthcare, Saint Mary’s has incorporated animal therapy into its psychology and counseling courses. Students recently enrolled in the B.S. in Psychology program in Minneapolis learned the benefits of animal therapy and held “mock” counseling sessions with certified therapy animals, including dogs, horses, and guinea pigs. Yes, animals were brought into urban classrooms. Image that–a miniature horse in a building on Park Avenue.
