The Role of Animal-Assisted Interventions in Addressing Trauma-Informed Care

Given the importance of the therapeutic relationship and utilizing creative, diverse approaches, professional counselors may benefit by exploring treatment modalities that enhance these components in counseling. In this manuscript, the authors propose two ways AAI can add to trauma-informed care: animal-assisted therapy in counseling (AAT-C) and animal-assisted crisis response (AACR). In this article, authors discuss relevant literature, provide examples of appropriate interventions and techniques, and offer resources for further information.
