Location
Library Galleria



Description

SBU Libraries works with CAPS, SBU Counseling and Psychological Services to present an assisted animal event. CAPS is excited to introduce the PALS Program: Pet Away Life Stress! Through Animal Assisted interactions, the PALS program offers an opportunity for stress reduction for our student community. Animal Assisted interactions are consistently shown to decrease anxiety and feelings of self-reported loneliness. Animal Assisted interactions have also been shown to reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, and reduce stress hormones in their human friends!
