Fear, Aggression and Marko


The two children were there to pick out a puppy.  It should have been a pleasant occasion, but the kids were terrified.  One 15 months old and the other two and a half, they were screaming and would not leave dad who was holding both.  The puppies were not even close to them.  This would require some assistance to overcome the youngsters’ fear.

Quietly, the therapist entered the room and went to the far end and lay down.  He stayed there several minutes.  He would move around the room and watch the reaction of the children, stop, observe and move closer.  His influence calming, the two would be put down, but still clung to dad’s legs.
