About Me

      My name is Stephanie Banta and I am a Senior at Purdue University. I am majoring in Sociology and I will be graduating in May 2012 with my Bachelor's of Arts in Sociology. My dream job is to become a social work and help families in crises. One of my goals is training my dog to become a therapy dog because research has shown that some people do not like talking to social workers, therapists or counselors about their problems. And they have found that if there is a therapy animal in the room that people will tell their problems to the therapy dog and the social worker/counselor/ therapists can help the person with problems when they do not want to open up and talk to the just the social work/counselor/therapists that is in the room.
