VC Pet Program Helps Emotionally III AP Wirephoto By David Treadwell COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Sometimes pets can help the emotionally ill where druses, electro-shock or the analyst fails, an Ohio State university psyrhobioloKist says “Our research shows that pet-facilitated psychotherapy works with mental patients who have often been the most rum-responsive to traditional forms of treatment," said Dr Samuel ('arson Dr Corson involved 50 pa Hents at the Ohio State-psychiatric hospital unit with 20 “feeling heart” dogs in a nine-month experiment in gaining his findings “Livened Up” The patients, some catatonic. were permitted to K roo rn, exercise and play with the dows. ‘‘In some cases, the patients’ behavior chanced almost from the start," said Corson "They livened up They established a bond of love with the dogs by means of which they were eventually able to begin communicating better with their therapists." Corson said it was this bond with patients that led to the dogs being dubbed “feeling heart” dogs — a play on the term for guide dogs for the blind One 17-year-old girl had been hospitalized for seven months before she joined the experiment. “She was a schizophrenic and had been through all the usual forms of therapy without success,” Corson said “She walked around like a statue and the only words she said were that she wanted to kill herself " Discharged Then the girl met a young border collie named Hat Corson described Mal as “an intelligent, well-mannered dog that responded well to orders” The psychobiologist said the results were astounding After a few months of therapy, including videotape filming of sessions between Mal and her, the girl received her discharge “She is a very beautiful, cheerful and social youngster now,” said Corson proudly “She has even talked about becoming a dog trainer.” Videotapes of patients and dogs served two purposes, Corson said. They allowed researchers to study reactions more thoroughly and patients reinforced feelings of mastery and being lov^d by watching their own interaction with the dogs. Carefully Matched •lust any dog wouldn’t do Dogs had to be matched with patients carefully, Corson said “Dogs have a diversity of personalities,” he said "A re ticent dog, for example, would only strengthen the negative feelings of a patient with paranoia. He might say to himself, ‘See, even animals don't like me.’ " Only two of 50 patients failed to accept dogs into their therapy program, he said. Thursday Friday and SaturdayLAST 3 DAYS TO SWE!
