The Biology of Socialization:

  • What is the difference between a sensitive and critical period in the brain and how does this relate to dogs?

About the presenter

Hi my name is Vibeke Francis and I am a Reiki Master Healer & Teacher based in Sandwich, Kent.

I experienced my first healing session in 2010. Afterwards just knew something profound had changed within me but I can’t even today tell you what the change was. However I just knew this was a path I had to follow.

Within two months after that first treatment I had found a Reiki teacher to work with and completed Reiki Level 1 – my journey had begun.

I opened my own clinic in 2011, offering healing to people and animals. In 2016 I became a Reiki teacher and now hold workshops regularly teaching people Reiki.

Anxiety: The Whole Story

Presented by

Dr Jessica Hekman

Sunday 13th December 2020 19.00 – 20.00 (GMT)

Webinar Cost £15.00

 

Anxiety: The Whole Story:

  • Genetic influence on behavior is not like an on-off switch – it is more like a chaotic weather system with lots of little pushes
  • There are breed differences in behavior, but how much is genetic?
  • In breeding for the “ideal” personality, we have to make tradeoffs
  • Intelligence may correlate with anxiety.
  • We can breed for tameness and resilience – but currently that’s not our priority
  • Puppies get information from their parents about the environment they should expect to live in (not just from genetics)
  • Mild stress in early life can be positive for developing a resilient adult – but not too much!
  • Anxiety can affect lifespan
  • Anxiety can be affected by chronic pain
