“He looks relaxed, but it’s work for him,” notes Rick as he explains how the five-year-old was taught at a California institute, specialising in training service dogs for PTSD sufferers.
Dr Smith’s main focus is to encourage change in his patients’ lives, creating and implementing plans that alter behaviour, therefore reducing anxiety and minimising avoidance.
Using exposure therapy, Rick tackles a wide range of attention related problems that seem so ubiquitous in our fast-paced society. However, neither problem nor cure is exclusive to contemporary life.
“This is the oldest and most successful form of therapy there is, that’s why I do it. 80% people get better when they go through about 10 to 15 rounds of treatment. You expose yourself to the thing that you’re afraid of and you get better,” explains the soft-spoken American.
Tucker and Dr Smith might be different business partners to the ones you’re used to, but their professional relationship is counted upon by many diverse individuals looking to change the outcome of their lives.
