Dr. David A Crenshaw, a child psychologist who is Clinical Director of the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, explains why children often need aid in getting though such emotional difficulties as psychosomatic symptoms, depression, difficulty controlling impulses, and behavioral problems in school; frequently intellectual or cognitive maturity precedes emotional maturity. Young children may lack language skills, but the natural expression of children is through play or art, which can be used to help them through emotional problems. Dr. Crenshaw has been involved in trying to get New York State to pass a law that would allow therapy dogs help emotionally impaired witnesses (not only children) handle courtroom trials. The law is known as “Rosie’s Law” after the first case in New York that permitted a dog to be used in this way.
