Dr. Rainer  Wohlfarth, Bettina  Mutschler - Animal Power of Healing


Why being with animals makes us happy and healthy

Dr. Rainer Wohlfarth and Bettina Mutschler have spent decades looking into the huge effect animals have on us humans. In their daily work they deal with the entire range of human behaviour – and how animals can help us understand ourselves better.

How can goats help a listless child suffering because his parents have split up become more cheerful again? Why do people with depression open up when a dog comes bouncing up to them? And then there is this: what can a manager learn from a donkey? These questions and other issues are addressed by the two authors in an excellently readable and entertaining mixture of scientific facts and genuine examples from their daily work. Their book deals with far more than just the simple appreciation of the relationship between humans and animals. It helps us understand how tremendously important the contact with animals is for our health, and how we can make use of this realisation in our daily lives.

"Using their decades of experiences, [the authors] describe the many ways in which animals act as social support. A book not just for animal lovers."
