About this item

Ten animals - nine non-human and one human - take you on ten journeys, where, in each case, an animal in need of rescue overcomes their issues and goes on to help people overcome theirs.

Dale Preece-Kelly, an Animal Assisted Therapy Practitioner, details his own very personal experiences - and how he was rescued by his animals - describing how the creatures he has rescued have become first class therapy animals.

Featuring a unique range of species, some never previously used in a therapeutic environment, this book demonstrates how each species brings its own benefits to a therapy session. With a foreword from respected Animal Geographer Dr Daniel Allen, who has long supported Dale's work, the book also answers many questions posed by those interested in working within the field of animal assisted therapy, including:

How do you select a therapy animal?

How do you 'train' a therapy animal?

What are the benefits of working with different animals?

How do the benefits of each species differ?
