Considering Animals in Rehabilitation Psychology

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


Rehabilitation Psychology is based on the biopsychosocial model of health and thus includes attention to psychosocial support needs after loss of somatic functions. Human Animal Interaction may augment several kinds of treatment and support. Both fields are relatively new and their intersection has been sparsely explored. This paper introduces the fields, elaborates on three intersections, and discusses psychologists’ roles in these. The elaborations are based on reviews and exemplary contributions in Human Animal Interaction research, and we advocate and apply the IAHAIO standards for terminology and human and animal welfare that has become consensus for about 100 organizations across the globe.
