Not Just Warm and Fuzzy: The Proven Value of Including Animals in Therapeutic Regimen

Category: Seminar
Description: The Feb. 12 seminar will be presented by Kathy Klotz from Intermountain Therapy Animals.The differences between service/assistance animals and therapy animals will be discussed in the seminars. Service/assistance animals have full-time careers and are specifically trained to help one person, while therapy animals and their owners volunteer as teams visiting hospitals, healthcare and educational institutions to provide therapeutic assistance to many different clients.Klotz, executive director of Intermountain Therapy Animals, will discuss “Not Just Warm and Fuzzy: The Proven Value of Including Animals in Therapeutic Regimens.” Klotz has worked with ITA since 1997 and has helped it grow to become one of the largest organizations of its kind in the world. One of ITA’s programs, the Reading Education Assistance Dogs® (R.E.A.D.®) program, has spread nationally and worldwide. The program pairs children with therapy dogs to read to, and studies have shown the children benefit both personally and in their reading skills because of the program.
