University’s Staff Therapy Dog Continues to Bring Comfort
March 27, 2020
By connecting with students on Instagram, Brue, a member of the University’s Counseling and Psychological Services team, is still making students smile while endeavoring to give them a sense of calm as they adjust to the impact of the coronavirus global pandemic and learning remotely for the remainder of this semester.
“I want them to know they aren’t alone in this,” said Pitotti. “I hope Brue will be a reminder that while the news may be heavy and anxiety-provoking at times, there is still an abundance of goodness and positivity to take in.”
An animal-assisted therapy (AAT) specialist, Brue is typically available to students on campus, where he is involved with individual therapy sessions, group counseling, and outreach activities on campus, such as visiting residence halls, attending health fairs, and visiting departments and events.
