This is the first textbook to focus specifically on animal-assisted interventions with a social work theoretical orientation.
Animals can be used to assist social work practitioners in engaging hard-to-reach clients, promoting behavioral and cognitive changes, inducing a sense of well-being, and fostering social skills development with specific populations. This book offers a unique social work perspective on issues related to animal-assisted interventions (AAI) at both the micro and macro level of practice. Readers will learn about mainstream clinical practices that utilize animals in a therapeutic setting as well as how AAI can be used by social workers to address the needs of vulnerable and at-risk populations.
