 Ten animals – nine non-human and one human – take you on ten journeys, where, in each case, an animal in need of rescue overcomes their issues and goes on to help people overcome theirs.  p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

Dale Preece-Kelly, an Animal Assisted Therapy Practitioner, details his own very personal experiences – and how he was rescued by his animals – describing how the creatures he has rescued have become first class therapy animals.

Featuring a unique range of species, some never previously used in a therapeutic environment, this book demonstrates how each species brings its own benefits to a therapy session. With a foreword from respected Animal Geographer Dr Daniel Allen, who has long supported Dale’s work, the book also gives advice on how to select and ‘train’ a therapy animal, what the benefits are of working with different animals, and how the benefits of each species differ.

This book provides a unique and fascinating insight into the field of animal-assisted therapy.

About the author

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

Dale Preece-Kelly is an Animal Assisted Therapy Practitioner who is regarded worldwide as a pioneer in the discipline of animal assisted therapy. He has worked extensively in this field since 2010, almost exclusively within the mental health sector. Here, he has honed his unique skills for helping rescued animals to overcome their issues, animals who then help those with psychiatric disorders to overcome their own issues. Dale’s work is unique in regard to the fact that his non-human colleagues are highly diverse, and he works with a range of exotic animals, including skunks, chinchillas, African pygmy hedgehogs, tortoises, lizards, snakes, amphibians, and even insects, as well as dogs and rabbits. All of these creatures are Dale's own companion animals, who live with him at home.
