Episode 490 – Catastrophizing Animal Behavior and the Human-Animal Bond


Do you catastrophize animal behavior and the human-animal bond?  This podcast compares and contrasts its direct and indirect effects on behavior and the bond.

Some of you might recall that I addressed this topic only as it related to companion animal behavior last fall. This podcast adds wild animals in their natural or captive environments to the discussion. How do they fare when they give in to their emotions? How do they fare when their caregivers in captive environments can’t cope? How does this compare with what happens when companion animals or their caregivers succumb to catastrophizing?
