by Leif Hallberg (Author)

The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy bridges theory, research, and practical methods to fill a rapidly developing gap for physical, occupational, speech, and mental health professionals interested in incorporating horses in therapy. Extensively researched and citing over 300 peer-reviewed journal articles, it examines core issues such as terminology, scope of practice, competency recommendations, horse care ethics, and clinical practice considerations. This book is an essential resource for professionals who wish to use a best-practices approach to equine-assisted therapy.

"Leif Hallberg's The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy is a must read for anyone interested in the scope, provision, business, ethics, and science of incorporating horses in health care. As informative and thoughtful as it is honest and visionary, there is no better single source for learning about diverse equine-assisted therapies today, their current challenges, and future possibilities."

Wendy Wood, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, professor of occupational therapy, director of research at the Temple Grandin Equine Center, Colorado State University

"When one thinks of horses, words such as strength and majesty are often considered. Equine-assisted interventions have developed over the past fifty years and are becoming widely recognized as a form of therapy. Hallberg's book and companion workbook are excellent sources for learning how trained horses and professionals can work together to support the quality of life for many. This book and the accompanying workbook are a must for all interested professionals."

Aubrey H. Fine, EdD, licensed psychologist/professor at California Polytechnic State University, editor/author of The Handbook on Animal Assisted Therapy, How Animals Help Students Learn, and Afternoons with Puppy.

"This is the book that the field of equine-assisted therapy has been waiting for! Integrating theory, research, and practice, Leif Hallberg provides the foundation for the future professional development of this evolving approach. This book is essential for anyone working in this field. It offers a vital contribution to the compassionate equestrian movement that I teach. Read it and be of benefit to all beings."
