Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) is a creative, neurosequential, and trauma-informed intervention, demonstrating efficacy with a variety of mental health issues. However, it requires special training to be practiced ethically. We discuss the development of an AAT course, and provide a course description, suggested texts, and supplemental reading material and evaluation methods leading to AAT certification, integrating both didactic and experiential activities for a well-rounded pedagogical approach. A sample syllabus is provided.
