Animal Assisted Therapy Activities to Motivate and Inspire was written by Chicago area AAT pioneer, Nancy Lind, who spills 25 years worth of experience into an easy to read, user friendly, and ultimately practical book. Unlike any other AAT book that’s currently on the market, Lind focuses her reader’s attention on the actual activities that make up the practice of animal assisted therapy.
According to Dulcey Lima OTR/L, Orthotic Interventions, Animal Assisted Therapy Activities to Motivate and Inspire is an excellent resource for pet therapy teams, educators, and therapists. Professionals will benefit from the clearly outlined instructions, with educational and clinical application suggestions from Nancy Lind. The goal-directed, cross-referenced charts in the appendix provide practitioners with the perfect framework for matching a participant’s goals to a specific pet-activated task. This book eliminates the need to reinvent activities for each setting, and challenges professionals to improvise. Core activities, combined with the special attributes of the pet and human team members, create the perfect context for participants with physical, social and educational challenges to enhance skills and experience success.
A portion of all proceeds is donated to Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy, Inc., a 501(c)(3) AAT Group in the Chicago area.
The book is $19.95 USD plus shipping and handling; fundraising/volume pricing starts at $15.00/book (within the US).
