Meeting for senior citizens: Sure, one can live without a dog, but is it worth it? after the screening of “Buddy” by Heddy Honigmann
In Polish only
Partners : Z Psem w Pełni, Association of Creative Initiatives “ę”, Archipelago of Generations
The screening will be preceded by a presentation about combating ageist stereotypes and about senior citizens who share their passions and skills during intergenerational projects engaging local communities. The presentation will be organized by Association of Creative Initiatives “ę”, which implements sociocultural projects throughout Poland.
The screening will be followed by a warm and objective conversation with dog therapists about the effects of living with a dog on human physical and mental health. Should we worry about not having enough well-being, strength, or money to care for a dog? Let’s think about it together, summing up the tremendous benefits versus the potential problems!
Kasia Patej (Zendog.pl) and Ania Gadomska (PsyHauTerapia.pl) – experienced dog therapists and canine communication specialists, they educate and advise owners on raising dogs right and building interspecies harmony. The tagline of their joint workshop reads “Fully With the Dog”.
