Animal Assisted Therapy in Counseling
by Cynthia K. Chandler
This exceptional resource outlines the history and counseling techniques of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT). Cynthia K. Chandler has filled Animal Assisted Therapy in Counseling with case examples to illustrate how to select, train and evaluate an animal for therapy work.

The book examines ethical considerations and risk management, provides a history of AAT, and discusses the latest empirical research in the field. The author also includes guidelines for establishing a university-based program for AAT training.

Sample forms to be used in screening clients and recording session data are included as well as a series of separate illustrations (line drawings of animals) to facilitate some of the recommended AAT techniques.

This book is designed for use in training courses for AAT in counseling and related programs (such as social work, psychology, and rehabilitation counseling). To date, there is no other book dedicated to teaching techniques specific to AAT.
