Several of my clients use their pets in the important work of assited therapy. I think it's important to understand the many positive benefits our pets bring to our lives. This book is the first one, a ground breaking edition, which explores the positive benefits pets have in the various aspects of counseling. Anyone involved or seeking to become involved in pet therapy should find this book very helpful!

This is one of the best books available about the use of AAT in mental health practice. I've reviewed most of them for some research I'm doing in the field, and Dr. Chandler's is thorough, based on the latest research, easy to read and absorb, and filled with very practical information. She covers the tremendous benefits of this type of work along with necessary cautions, and emphasizes the importance of proper training and credentialing. The book is ideal for people just entering this fascinating field, but there is also lots of useful information for more experienced AAT practitioners as well.

I read this book in one sitting!!! I couldn't put it down until I had read the whole thing! This book is a spectacular addition to the counseling field in its own right, and fills an important gap left by other animal-assisted therapy (AAT) texts. Dr. Chandler has collected in a very engaging and readable form all one needs to know to effectively conduct AAT. I found the information and guidelines on AAT particularly useful, especially the sections emphasizing examples of therapeutic responses, uses of animals assisting in therapy, and the various requirements for certification. The pictures and descriptions of Dr. Chandler's own work with her 3 co-therapists were fun and informative as well. Before you buy any other book on AAT, buy this one first; read it, read it again, and then see the difference AAT really makes for counseling clients. On second thought, don't buy any other AAT books; this is the only one you'll need.

This is a great reference book for those who are interested and participating in animal assisted interactions. It's helpful to me, and I've been the human partner of a team for 6 years, and I was a team evaluator, too. It helps me help others to set up visiting guidelines for new teams, etc.

I am in the early stages of reading this book, but I have to say so far it is excellent. I am a Senior college student majoring in health and psychology with a plan to create a AAT/AAA program for our area and this is the perfect book to help me understand the work and build the program. Definite must read for animal and non-animal therapists, volunteer or animal lover interested in understanding the healing power of animals.
