About this item
Afternoons with Puppy makes it easy for the reader to understand how the inherent powers within pet or therapy animal relationships can be harnessed. The book shows how the intuitive power of animals can help heal hurts, lessen stress, create the feeling of being needed, and express a caring side. Fine notes that the stories shared in the original book pointed out the value that animals have in our lives both personally and therapeutically. Science is just now catching up and revealing what many of us believed before--that animals are good for our well-being. He finds that in the interim there has been progress, including research studies that show that the scientific community now better understands the physiological and psychological benefits of human-animal interactions. He also cites the growth over recent years of applying animal-assisted interventions in numerous disciplines along with significant movement in the development of best practices protocol. In addition, there is the prominence of many news and social media avenues that cover the role of animals in our lives. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
