Expanded Description:

As more and more people adjust to the physical and emotional challenges of today's chaotic world, therapy dogs are proving their worth in diverse health care, educational and rehabilitation settings. No one knows this better than Kris Butler.

Her Teaching People Through Dogs workshops integrate the science of human health and education with the magic of hands-on interactions with appropriate dogs. Her seminars teach health care providers, educators, volunteers, and dog trainers across the United States the most effective and ethical ways to include visiting therapy dogs in settings that enhance human healing, learning, and self-awareness.

Therapy Dogs Today: Their Gifts, Our Obligation explores complex professional and ethical issues that surround the environments in which therapy dogs do their jobs. This is an important book for anyone who handles or trains visiting therapy dogs, and it is essential for professional people who oversee therapy dog programs in their workplace.
