Dr. Patricia McConnell Presents: The Education of Will - A Mutual Memoir of a Woman and her Dog
The Education of Will:
The "Will" in the title of Patricia's new memoir refers to a Border Collie named Willie, who came as a "troubled, spark of a dog" who was loving and attentive, but also consumed by fear. However the word "will" also refers to will power, which, as is made clear in the book, is not enough to help a panicked dog, much less a dog owner overwhelmed with her own fears.
Join Patricia in this compelling talk, which will cover recent scientific discoveries about the emotional lives of dogs, including such topics as whether they can love us as much as we love them, if they can be traumatized (or suffer from PTSD?), and how to treat them if they do. Patricia will also touch on her very personal story about how her beloved Willie first set her back, but eventually led to healing from the traumas in her own past that she had tried to "will" away for decades. Join Patricia and other dog lovers for this inspiring exploration of the bond between people and dogs, as Patricia details her personal journey with Willie to turn a life of fear into one of confidence and compassion.
