The field of Animal Assisted Intervention continues to grow, with use for treating additional disorders, patient populations, in different treatment settings, and with different animals. The Handbook on Animal-Assisted Therapy continues to be the leading textbook and reference in this field for clinical practitioners. It provides the evidence basis for the effectiveness of this treatment, as well as guidelines for how to perform it, from the selection of treatment animal to application with patients.

This new 6th edition is fully updated and contains 15 new chapters on culture, research, standards, of practice, and more. Organized into four sections, the book explores
the conceptualization of the animal-human bond, best practices for AAI professionals, considerations related to animal selection/ training/ welfare, and utilizing AAI in special populations.

The book may serve as a study guide for the Animal Assisted Intervention Specialist Certification Exam.
