Yvonne Eaton-Stull, a Slippery Rock University associate professor of social work, wrote a chapter “The Gifts We Receive from Animals,” a book edited by Lori Kogan in which professionals engaged in therapy work discuss the unique impact animals have in the lives of those they help. 

Additionally, Eaton-Stull and her crisis response dog Chevy, and two SRU senior social work students, Sherry Rigel and Taylor Gunn, presented at the National Homeland Security Conference, July 11, in Cleveland, for a workshop titled “Understanding best practices in animal-assisted crisis response.” Eaton-Stull presented at a separate panel discussion at the National Organization of Forensic Social Work conference, June 14-16, in New Orleans, and SRU's social work program partnership with various police departments.
