Healing Companions —Psychiatric Service Dogs (PSD)
Studies have shown that pets lower our stress levels, and people remain healthier and live longer more fulfilled lives when they share it with a pet. Today we’re learning that if our animal companions can do this for otherwise healthy folks, as well as those with physical challenges, they also offer extraordinary benefits for emotional injuries! Join Pet Peeves guest, clinical psychotherapist and dog trainer Jane Miller as she discusses her new book, Healing Companions. Learn how psychiatric service dogs can help--and heal--people who suffer from a range of emotional ills, from eating disorders and anxiety to agoraphobia, depression, and post-traumatic stress.
