Please note, this event has expired.
Learn more about man’s best friend at the Henry B. Plant Museum.
In conjunction with the its current exhibit Dogs in Art, the Henry B. Plant Museum is please to offer a presentation by Cynthia Gangi, Ph.D. on the psychology of human-canine relationships. Have you ever wondered if your dog really does make you feel better or if is it just in your head? Dogs and humans have maintained an invaluable relationship throughout history. This connection seems to be stronger now than ever, with recent research demonstrating a cross-species intertwinement of emotional experiences. Dogs are no longer just protectors of our physical safety; they are now guardians of our psychological realms.
University of Tampa Assistant Professor of Psychology Cynthia Gangi, Ph.D., will explore the historical and empirical data that explains why man’s best friend makes a great therapist. Hear this special presentation on Sunday, September 25th 2:30-3:30 in the Music Room of Plant Hall. This presentation is free and open to the public. The Museum will be open noon – 5 pm at regular admission prices.
Dogs in Art, is graciously underwritten by GreenbergTraurig, The Beck Group, The New Barker Magazine, The Henry Plant Museum Society and the Knox Family Foundation.
