Join us for a screening of the TED Talk “Depressed dogs, cats with OCD – what animal madness means for us humans” by Laurel Braitman and discover what humans can learn from watching animals cope with everyday situations. While meeting new human friends during this Center for Health & Wellbeing program, you’ll learn to take note of the similarities in behaviors between humans and animals before diving into a discussion facilitated by Sara Wright, the CHWB’s Wellbeing Guide, focused on how animal behaviors can teach humans how to problem-solve and sort through life’s challenges.
By participating in this program, you can expect to:
- learn how our pets are tied to our Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Wellbeing.
- learn how time spent with our pets can improve our Social Wellbeing.
- build social connections within the community through shared experiences.
This program is presented and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
