Catawba Psi Chi Members learn about emotional assistance animals
Catawba College’s Psi Chi, the international honor society for psychology, recently hosted a presentation given by Dr. Nan Zimmerman, director of counseling and wellness services at the college, about emotional support animals. The types of emotional support animals are numerous, and include: dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, hedgehogs, lizards, and even miniature horses.
Psi Chi students learned about the differences between service animals and emotional support animals, learned about qualifications needed to have emotional support animals on campus and how emotional support animals provide comfort in stressful situations. Zimmerman also discussed recent news stories about emotional support animals on airplanes.
