Discussing Live Animals in Children's Education with Melvin Chan – Pt1

Tiamat Warda Rebecca Madrid Molly Sumridge 4 December 2021 15


Background
share close

In this two-part episode we welcome Melvin Chan to discuss his research reviewing the impact of including live morethanhuman animals in educational programs for children and youth. Specifically with a focus on the promotion of social and emotional competencies. We consider the ways in which these kinds of programs may exclude certain populations, how the inclusion of different species might affect outcomes, and the ways in which trainers and the animal workers themselves could be affected by these programs.
