Registered Therapy Teams, made up of an individual and his/her
companion pet, engage children to develop and improve healthy core
behaviors that are critical to normal development.
There are 7 Core Behaviors that Gabriel's Angels focuses on with the children they see at our partnering agencies.
Featured Core Behavior
Tolerance is the ability and willingness to understand and accept differences. Tolerant children are less likely to react to differences in people with fear or violence. It's natural to be afraid of something that is new or different; however, the ability to face and overcome one's fear teaches a child how to value individual differences. Tolerance helps children learn to accept and understand how our differences make us unique and interesting.
An important aspect of learning to be tolerant is the feeling of being accepted and valued. When children are able to identify and appreciate their strengths and accept their vulnerabilities, it's easier for them to genuinely respect the value in themselves and in others. Tolerance is integral to interacting with others in a respectful manner.
Gabriel's Angels Therapy Teams promote tolerance by encouraging children to discuss similarities and differences between dog breeds as a bridge to discussing their own similarities and differences as well as identifying individual strengths. Therapy Teams refrain from using stereotypes or slang in discussions of various dog breeds or other different groups. When children are able to listen and discuss differences respectfully, their capacity for building tolerance increases.
