Oct. 10 PAWS talk: ‘Why Dogs? The short answer: Because it works!’

K9s on the Frontline: Trauma and the power of dogs

Event has passed

CAMDEN — To learn more about the work of K9's on the Frontline, join PAWS this Saturday, at 10 a.m., to hear first hand about the difference a dog can make.

To fully grasp the emotional power these dogs possess you need to understand human memory first, according to PAWS, in a news release. Ordinary memory can be placed in context and time and recalled with ease and little to no stress. Traumatic memory however, in order to protect people from overwhelming affect, is encoded in consciously inaccessible parts of the brain. Traumatic memory typically has no storyline, no beginning and no end. To make matters worse, traumatic memory is freely taken in and stored, but the person’s ability to rationalize the experience is compromised.

This presentation is free and open to the public. 

PAWS is located at 123 John Street in Camden. Park and enter in the back of the building.
