On ‘What’s Trending,’ hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest Erin Cain discuss the science behind animal-assisted therapy and the unique benefits it offers for people of all ages.

Stress Buster

Interacting with animals triggers the release of calming hormones, lowering stress levels and improving mood. This makes animal-assisted therapy helpful for those dealing with anxiety or trauma.

Beyond Words

Animals provide unconditional acceptance and a sense of comfort. This can create a safe space for healing, especially for children or those who find traditional talk therapy challenging.

Growing Support

Animal-assisted therapy is popping up in various settings, from schools to hospitals. The positive outcomes support greater adoption of these programs as a valuable mental health tool.
