Summary
What do we know about the benefits of human-animal interaction (HAI)- and what future research needs to be done to ensure high-quality, evidence-based practices? This book is an essential research volume for anyone interested in the impact of animal therapies and interaction on child health and development. Gathering contributions from the leading experts in the HAI field, this landmark volume explores the current evidence on: how children with disabilities can benefit from animal therapies; how animals can strengthen empathy, trust, and other hallmarks of social competence; why animal-assisted intervention is valuable for children with mental health issues and physical illnesses; how animals in classrooms can enhance a wide range of developmental skills; which key factors help ensure ethical HAI practices; how to reduce risks associated with child-animal interactions; why pet ownership can benefit both a child and the whole family. -- from Back Cover
