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, a pioneer in the area of Pet Therapy. 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. For pet therapy volunteer teams, it encourages thinking about each activity and developing it for each unique situation. The book gently reminds us that we need to learn from each other and need to allow our dogs to naturally interact with each participant to achieve their own individual success.
