UPCOMING WEBINAR: BEST PRACTICES FOR HOSTING A COLLEGE STRESS RELIEF EVENT

webinarWhen: Thursday May 28, 10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (1:00 p.m. Eastern, noon Central, 11:00 a.m. Mountain, 9:00 a.m. Alaska, 7:00 a.m. Hawaii)

Paws to Relax before finals!  Presented by Nancy Lefkowitz, Pepperdine University

The Housing & Residence Life team at Pepperdine University, Malibu, CA has successfully run this event for the past five years as each semester ends. The program has grown to include Pepperdine's School of Law students and the Psychology Department recently expanded the event by conducting an in-depth research study.

Students love helping with the planning details from reserving VIP parking spots for the Pet Partners teams to preparing thank you goodie bags for the pets and their chauffeurs. Many students miss their families especially their dogs and look forward to seeing them when they head home after finals.

Learn why early planning pays off and consistent protocols are a must. Join us on Thursday May 28, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific for this webinar on the best practices for hosting this college event for students, staff and faculty to reduce stress and enjoy the benefits of animal-assisted therapy.

Attend this free one-hour webinar Thursday May 28. Register now

TEAM OF THE WEEK
Ben E- Munroe Township NJ
"Ron, of Monroe Township New Jersey, brought Ben E to visit my mother, during the last year of her life. She was a lover of animals - dogs in particular. When Ben E arrived, she sat beside my mother. She never attempted to jump on her, or even to extend her paw, which would have been dangerous given my mom's condition. But she looked straight at my mom and made it clear that she welcomed her touch, her words, and simply the opportunity to sit by her side. Mom, who had fairly advanced-stage Alzheimer's Disease, would remember Ben E's visits and talk about them days later - an astonishing feat for her. My sister and I are truly grateful to Ben E, and to Ron Weisinger, for providing this healing experience to our mother. We wish them both health and continued blessing in this sacred work."
