"In this unique and expansive exploration of the human-animal connection, a cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary group of experts sheds light on ways to incorporate animals into therapeutic interventions. This style of knowledge exchange offers the reader a sense of being part of an intimate conversation and of being gifted the kind of special knowledge offered by a personal mentor. Clear and concise, this book is a valuable resource for clinicians, teachers, researchers, and others interested in understanding and optimizing our relationship with other animals."
