Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) means using animals to help people. It does not mean doing therapy on animals. Many professionals use animals in their work, for example in counselling, physical rehabilitation and education. There are also less structured ways to include animals in working with people, such as animal-assisted activities (AAA). Collectively, this work is known as animal-assisted interventions or AAI.
Lead the Way offers Intensive Therapy-Dog Handlers Courses, Advanced Therapy-Dog Applications Courses, and a Psychology Clinic for Australians to utilize.
