Play Therapy with animals

Animal Assisted Play Therapy is defined as “the integrated involvement of animals in the context of play therapy, in which appropriately-trained therapists and animals engage with children and families primarily in play interventions aimed at improving the child’s psychosocial health AND the animal’s well-being. Play and playfulness are essential ingredients of the interactions and the relationship.” (VanFleet, 2004, 2008)
