BT12 Short Course 37 – The Power of Animal Metaphors and Animal-Assisted Therapy in Brief Psychotherapy – Dale Klein-Kennedy, MA, and Karen Wall, MA (Audio Only)

Animal metaphors are used as a part of our everyday vocabulary describing relationships, personal characteristics, etc. Metaphor in the presence of the work with the animal takes on a new and deeper meaning. This presentation will demonstrate the powerful use of animals and animal metaphors in brief psychotherapy. Through examples and discussion of the work, attendees will develop an understanding of ATT (animal-assisted therapy) and will participate in a live demonstration of AAT.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Identify at least two appropriate uses of animal metaphors in therapy.

  2. Define “animal metaphor” as it applies to psychotherapy.

  3. List three reasons why the use of animals can shorten the number of sessions needed to achieve a positive therapeutic outcome.
