Public Radio for fourteen years, providing her intuitive and expert advice to
animal-loving listeners. Now, it's your turn to see Dr. McConnell in person!!!
Ever looked at your animal and wondered how much of her emotional life is
like your own? The Emotional Life of Animals on Thursday, March 19 from
7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. will explore the biology behind emotion in both you
and your companion animal, and why it's reasonable to believe that all
mammals share the emotions of love, fear, sadness, happiness and anger.
This entertaining and informative presentation includes slides and videos that
illustrate what emotions really are, what emotions we share with our animals,
and what ones we might not. Included is practical information about how to
handle problematic emotions like fear and anger. The evening ends in a
celebration of the amazing emotional bond between us and our beloved pets.
The fee for this lecture is $15. To register, sign up online or call (414) 431-6156. Dr. McConnell will be signing books and DVDs after the lecture.
