dc.description.abstract In this paper research of animals in therapy is reviewed and then used to inform a manual on the topic. A history of the field, a discussion of terminology, and a summary of therapies utilizing animals prefaces the review. Key research in animal therapy is reviewed, followed by contemplation of animal therapy in counselling, including therapeutic techniques, populations who may benefit from animals in counselling, and a discussion of benefits, challenges and ethical considerations. Welfare of animals in counselling is explored, followed by a synopsis, possible future directions in research and a conclusion. The manual designed for counsellors draws from this review and the writer’s experience to provide thoughtful and practical information for the practitioner interested in Animal Assisted Therapy. en
