Previous knowledge

Therapy helps us to ease the pain from injury or other medical issues. There are many versions of therapy. One version of therapy is with animals. That kind of therapy is becoming increasingly popular because of it efficiency. It is proven that animals help people, especially from house pets (in this subject, dogs). As we know influence of pets in our life(s) extremely important. They are helping us with different situations through our life(s), which confirms the saying: "DOGS ARE MEN'S BEST FRIEND". Dogs helps us with solving different stressful situations and except that, they become one of the reasons to go outside. We are aware that in surroundings with house pets or other animals, feelings of human become increasingly relaxed and happy. So with that said it is obvious that animals improve our psychological health. Dogs in therapy become support while therapist is doing his job.

Goal of the research

With this project we will get answers, for example:"What kind of effect do therapeutic dogs have on human health with medical issues? And what kind of influence do therapeutic animals have on humans with medical issues". Answers on those questions will give us cognition of effects and influence therapeutic animals (dogs) have on humans with medical issues.

Concept of work and methodological procedures

Together with other schools we will discuss about knowledge and facts, after literature research and visiting associations who use therapeutic animals. Research polls will be conducted through chosen population. From those polls we will get needed information’s. Project will last approximately a year. That will sufficiently give us time to gather enough information about subject. To conclude, with project will we find out about effects and influence of animals in curing people through various therapies.


    
Second student exchange in project "Therapy dogs" in Kaštel Štafilić  Second student exchange in project "Therapy dogs" in Kaštel Štafilić Minimize


Second student exchange in project "Therapy dogs" in Kaštel Štafilić
(February 22,  2019)

 

   The second exchange within the project "Therapy dogs" was held on February 22nd in Kaštel Štafilić, in the premises of the partner High School "Braća Radić". Students from School for Nurses Vrapče (Mario Nagrasajlović, Klara Jančić and Tino Pili) and students from Medical School Ante Kuzmanić Zadar (
Laura Drlja and Roberto Čakarun) arrived in the Nehaj area around eleven o'clock in the morning.
 

     The objective of this exchange was to get more closely acquainted to and talk with a person who has had direct experience working with an official, licenced therapy dog. In our case, that person was mrs Mara Mižor, a professor of vocational agricultural subjects at High School "Braća Radić". Her son, Pavo, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy after birth, and he gained the opportunity and right to the usage of a therapy dog from the Silver Center on the basis of that diagnosis.
   Along with Lego the dog (but sadly, without her son) and students Katarina Borić and Marlena Miše, teacher Midžor welcomed the rest of the participants of the project in the living room of the school dorm.

   Despite the long and heavy trip, the students listened to teacher Midžor attentively while she was talking about all of the things she had experienced in the last three years of living with him. From paperwork, the waiting period, the legal part of acquiring a dog, to the first encounter with the dog, its way of working, and ultimately the impact the dog had on her son - all of this was covered by teacher Midžor, while Lego wondered with interest around the room from one person to another. Even though Lego wasn’t on therapy dog duty at the time of our exchange, his sole presence in the room made the atmosphere seem more relaxed. The students and their mentors curiously asked questions and jotted down the crucial facts, while enjoying homemade pastries and coffee with the dog.

   After parting ways with teacher Midžor, the students held a round table to discuss what progress has been made so far concerning the individual tasks and questionnaire of the project. We collected all of the data collected so far, set up a basic skeleton, flow, and medium for the final presentation, split up new tasks and once again reviewed the already acquired facts.
   After that we went to a nearby cafe, where we relaxed with our last coffee of the day before parting ways and heading back to our home regions.
