Unleashing the Healing Power of Animals Paperback
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 gives advice on how to select and 'train' a therapy animal, what the benefits are of working with different animals, and how the benefits of each species differ.This book provides a unique and fascinating insight into the field of animal-assisted therapy.
