|Animals help heal trauma - here's how|
About 7 or 8 out of every 100 people will have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) at some point in their lives. About 10 of every 100 women (or 10 %) develop PTSD sometime in their lives compared with about 4 of every 100 men (or 4 %). While we do not know the exact percentage of animal rights activists with PTSD, we believe that it is much higher than the general population. Through true stories of experiences with rescued farm animals, learn how to identify trauma symptoms in yourself or others and how animals can help us heal.
