Learn the best practices for integrating animals into the therapeutic process.

As the incorporation of the human-animal bond in human wellness is becoming more recognized by healthcare/human services providers and the general public, enthusiasm and curiosity about Animal Assisted Interventions (AAIs) is growing at an exponential rate. Although evidence exists that animals have been assisting human healers for centuries, the formal professionalization of the approach is relatively new. As such, much confusion and misunderstanding occurs about AAIs. This topic will help clarify the plethora of terminology and taxonomies relevant to AAIs while simultaneously helping practitioners learn how to increase professional competency relevant to AAIs so they may one day provide safe, ethical and effective AAIs in their professional work. This material is a crucial first step towards accurately understanding the clinical application of the human-animal bond in human wellness, and will prepare you to address many common pitfalls and misconceptions about the intervention.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to define Animal Assisted Interventions (AAIs) and distinguish ways in which AAIs differ from other types of animal assisted activities.
  • You will be able to describe techniques and strategies for incorporating AAT-C into client sessions and treatment plans, including appropriate clinical documentation considerations.
  • You will be able to recognize distinctive roles associated with each member of the tripartite relationship: the provider, the client, and the animal.
  • You will be able to discuss evidence-based research and outcomes appropriate to AAIs.
