WSU’s Human-Animal Interaction:

What We Know and What the Future Holds

Human-Animal Interaction: What We Know and What the Future Holds offers a basic understanding of the value of human-animal interaction, and the benefits of animal intervention in such settings as schools, hospitals, and care facilities.

Research is increasingly showing that animal interventions can benefit children and adults in ways that more traditional interventions and therapies do not. This interdisciplinary course brings together experts in education, veterinary medicine, animal science, pharmacy and counseling to provide a broad look at the field.

Continuing Education Units

The course content is divided into modules that include PowerPoint lectures, videos, and readings. To receive CEUs, participants must score at least 90 percent on each module’s assessment.

The self-paced course can be started at any time, can easily be completed in one or two weeks, and must be completed within three months.
