Teaching Empathy

You can select from a rich menu of ideas, assessment tools, worksheets and resources to design humane education and animal-assisted therapy programs that are safe for both the human and animal participants. You will not take an animal into a classroom again and be ignorant of the possible impact of your words and the animal's behaviors on certain children. All of this knowledge is essential to safeguard the welfare of both humans and animals and to promote the best that the fields of humane education and animal-assisted therapies have to offer.  From the foreword by Barbara W. Boat, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry Executive Director, The Childhood Trust, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
