This week on Happy Hour with Operation Happy Nurse, Carley and Lucio welcome Prairie Conlon to the podcast! Prairie is a licensed mental health professional who uses animal-assisted therapy interventions in her work, particularly with military service members and children. She is also considered a leading expert on Emotional Support Animals. We were so grateful to have such an expert on, as we ask her all the questions we have about Animal Therapy and Emotional Support Animals. She fills us in on how she uses her animals as a professional and the benefits they bring to her patients. From the different strengths of “predator” and “prey” animals to dogs literally smelling our nightmares and intervening, animals are an amazing tool to help us heal, grow, and learn about ourselves!
