Over the past 30 years, I have researched and studied the value of AAT and the human animal bond in children including my recent research investigating the impact of canine assisted interventions and children with ADHD. Since 2007, I have worked with the administration of HSU to develop the Animal Assisted Interventions Graduate Certificate program and courses including the course Understanding the Human-Animal Bond. Clinically, as a licensed psychologist, I apply AAT with a variety of children with diverse forms of etiology. I have been on the faculty of California State Polytechnic University for 31 years. In 2001 I was awarded the Wang Award which given to a distinguished professor within the entire California State University system (23 Universities). I have many hobbies including my strong interests in performing magic.
