Description
Humans have long had a special bond with animals, initially as work animals, then as pets, and now more frequently as therapeutic companions for the aged and infirm. Animals have been found to help the sick get better more quickly, help the aged live longer and more satisfying lives, and specially trained animals are now helping stroke victims, the handicapped, and others to regain or build lost faculties. Increasingly animals are used for non-physical/medical therapies as well, as animals help the stressed and angry relax, and can help the shy be more forthcoming.

The Handbook on Animal Assisted Therapy is the first book of its kind, providing a comprehensive overview of the many ways in which animals can be used to assist therapists. Coverage includes how animals can be used to help with specific patient populations (children, the disabled, AIDS patients etc.), how they can be used in specific settings (hospitals, prisons, independent practice, etc.), and how to select appropriate animals (species, breed, and individual temperament) and design an AAT program.

Contributors represent the top people in the field from hospital settings, vet hospitals, animal training centers, and therapists in practice.
