The Healing Species is an 10-week violence intervention / character and compassion education outreach. Through the assistance of rescued dogs, dogs nobody else wanted, we teach children a process from which to understand and overcome abuse, neglect, and grief while teaching life skills in self-esteem, conflict resolution, anger management, respect for the feelings of others, and in gaining success through acts of compassion and responsibility instead of returning “violence for violence.”
