WALTHAM books

Edited by: Lisa S. Freund, Sandra McCune, Layla Esposito, Nancy R. Gee, Peggy McCardle
ISBN: 978-1-4338-2176-9
Published By: American Psychological Association Books
Publication Date: 15/02/16

Back cover Synopsis: An international and cross-disciplinary group of authors seek to understand human-animal interaction (HAI) by applying research in the neurobiology and genetics that underlie human social functioning. Chapters examine HAI from evolutionary and developmental perspectives, and weigh the implications of HAI research for animal welfare. Clinical applications include animal-assisted therapies for people with disabilities, acute or chronic health conditions, and social or emotional difficulty.

Intended for researchers in social neuroscience and HAI as well as clinicians, teachers and animal-rights activists, and anyone interested in how and why animals affect us the way they do.
