About this book


This book serves as a reference for social workers, psychologists, counselors, and other mental health professionals who utilize therapeutic farm therapy with their children or adult clients. The Brief is also valuable for policy makers at state mental health agencies and legislators, who must decide how to best utilize limited funding for mental health care. Chapters focus on the development of the therapeutic farm approach, various models of therapeutic farms in the U.S. and Europe, and case studies of specific therapeutic farms.
