Partnership between C-P.A.W.W. and It's a Military Child Life
We are excited to announce that Canines Providing Assistance to Wounded Warriors (C-P.A.W.W.) has teamed up with It's a Military Child Life to advance the care of military adolescents and families. C-P.A.W.W. is a Health Research Initiative for Veterans that aims to support military-related health initiatives by building community partnerships, investigating therapeutic interventions, and developing protocols of care for the armed forces.
C-P.A.W.W.'s current project, “Pet Dogs, Resilience, and Well-being in Military Adolescents” aims to learn about the resilience of military-connected teenagers who own a family dog and those who do not own a family dog. The project provides an opportunity for military-connected teenagers to share their voice and experiences as there is a lack of existing literature on the resilience of military-connected teenagers from their own perspective.C-P.A.W.W. wants to hear their voice!
C-P.A.W.W. has worked on, and continues to work on, numerous projects with the military population many of them examining the effectiveness of canines as a non-pharmacological therapeutic intervention. Their previous projects have demonstrated the potential benefits of canines on the health of the military population.
The partnership between C-P.A.W.W. and It's a Military Child Life will help to advance the care and support for military-connected teenagers and families. This project is just one step in their mission to comprehensively advance interdisciplinary research, education, and wellness protocols for wounded warriors, veterans, and military families.
