Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Animal assisted therapy program for maltreated youth at Orangewood Children's Home: A grant proposal project
by Appel, Jessica, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 66; 1517575
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a funding source to assist in implementing a canine based Animal Assisted Therapy program at Orangewood Children's Home. Orangewood Children's Home serves children and youth in Orange County who have been placed in protective custody due to neglect, abandonment, emotional, physical, and or sexual abuse. The proposed program will support the incorporation of canine assisted therapy interventions to the clinical interactions social workers and psychologists have with children in the facility. The goal of this program will be to aid youth in beginning the healing process and assisting them in coping with their experiences. The canines are meant to provide a safe and warm environment in which staff can provide support for abused children. The submission and or funding of the grant proposal was not a requirement for completion of this project.
