A hot topic in psychology right now is resilience—the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy or even significant sources of stress. We know that there are strategies shown to increase a person’s resilience, but what about those dogs we work with who are stressed or traumatized, who have lost their families or homes, or been victims of abuse or neglect? What can we learn from human psychology and ongoing work treating traumatized dogs to help dogs in our care recover from their past and become more resilient? Author Patricia McConnell will offer practical and science-based ways to help dogs develop resilience, no matter what they have been through in the past. Professionals, including behaviorists and trainers, and volunteers who work with dogs will benefit from this 60-minute webinar.

Speaker(s):Patricia B. McConnell, PhD, CAAB
