Basing on numerous scientific research, many medicine doctors and psychologists unequivocally agree that there exist not used by people capabilities of human mind to launch and control processes of self-healing or our organisms. Basing on this knowledge, Wanda Wegener allowed regaining full mental and physical fitness after a severe stroke, despite doctors said that she would be paralysed till the end of her life.
After regaining full health, consolidating her knowledge and basing on own difficult but at the same time priceless experiences, she developed a therapeutic method, which she promotes among patients for over 20 years, in order to give them relief and hope. Being asked by participants of her workshops and sessions, who experienced the efficiency of her methods and because of her love for animals, Wanda Wegener prepared therapeutic programs for animals.
Jeremy Bentham wrote: The question is not, “Can they reason?” nor, “Can they talk?” but “Can they suffer?” Psychotherapy for animals is more commonly used, especially as a tool for handling behaviour of animals not acceptable by people, mainly aggression and disobedience. The author of Quanpet, similarly as J. Bentham, perceived this issue from another perspective, mainly focusing on well-being of animals, resulting in their happiness and satisfaction of their guardians. Scientific research devoted to the influence of psychotherapy on animals is much worse documented than those concerning people. However, let us take a look at this subject matter from another perspective, following known German ethologist and psychologist Vitus B. DrŲscher and put a question: how much of human is in an animal?
