A priority of the Campaign for #USask, critical research at our university takes on many forms to address various growing global demands. Dr. Colleen Dell is at the forefront of animal therapy research and its impact on mental health and addictions for humans.
With her fellow researchers and students, Dr. Dell has attracted international attention in her work with service and therapy dogs (like Molly, pictured in previous post).
This innovative research is boldly contributing to the growing evidence of animal-assisted interventions that are delivering results for humans in need of comfort and support.
Dr. Dell’s research team recently partnered with St. John Ambulance in Saskatchewan to offer a first-of-its-kind online certificate course to INCREASE the SKILLS of therapy dog handlers to support their interactions with the program’s participants.
