Title: Dissociation : Vol. 8, No. 4, p. 247-252 : Therapy dogs and the dissociative patient: Preliminary observations
Author: Arnold, J. Cleveland
Abstract: Although pets have long been acknowledged as morale boosters, little work has been done with trained animals and dissociative patients. This paper documents dog/patient interactions in four different settings : support group, individual therapy with the patient's dog, individual therapy with the therapist's dog, and group dog obedience class. In each of these settings, the presence of the dog or dogs proved to be highly useful for both the patients and the therapist.
