This is only the tip of the iceberg, says Bernie Graham in Creature Comfort: Animals That Heal. Animal Assisted Therapy is now achieving amazing results in treating children with physical and mental disabilities by using trained dolphins in aquatic therapy. There are also programs that teach dogs to help the disabled with their daily chores. Horses, cats, dogs, and even more exotic animals are being used to offer support and bring hope to individuals, thereby enhancing human efforts.
Written with warmth and compassion, Creature Comfort looks at all aspects of Animal Assisted Therapy, including the theories behind it, to provide both a practical guide and a moving account of the many rewarding human-animal interactions.
