Animal Assisted Therapies

Healing by Affection. Animal-assisted therapies (AAT) are approaches that incorporate animals into the psycho-therapy process. Emotional recovery and positive psychological transformation often occur when the relationship between humans and animals grow, thus improving the patient’s consciousness through specific therapeutic goals and outcome measures. Restorative experiences include walking, brushing, petting an animal. AAT has been proven beneficial because animals are accepting, nonthreatening and non-judgmental, making it easier for people to open and heal from within.
