Integrating Pet Therapy Into
Pet therapy can be a valuable addition to the spiritual care tool kit to help patients and their families and staff make the connections they need with themselves and one another.
When seriously ill young patients are unable to communicate with their human caretakers, the opposite often happens when a therapy dog enters the room. Learn how therapy dog Kayla helps Lynch establish the trust and rapport that is so important in spiritual care; and how Kayla helps her connect with pediatric, adolescent, and young adult patients—some of whom are not reachable any other way.
Rev. Nancy Lynch, MDiv, BCC
director of spiritual care, Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital and MacDonald Women's Hospital, Cleveland, OH

Presentation Slides will be provided at the end of the webinar.
Who should attend: Chaplains in the health care and related industries; health care providers and other interested professionals.
How it Works: a computer with Internet access and speakers or headphones is required for the webcast. Our webinars are priced per computer terminal, not per participant. That means you can invite as many colleagues to join you as can fit into your conference space or cluster around your computer. The webinars are interactive and participants can ask questions. Perform an Automated System Test to check your computer's internet and sound.
