María Alejandra Olarte, Marcos Díaz Videla

Abstract


Animal Assisted Interventions has been used as a complementary therapy for little longer than fifty years. Scientific publications about empiric investigations that have employed dogs in therapeutic work, mainly with senior citizens, are reviewed. Lazarus´s Multimodal Model is taken as a guide.

The relevance of the Multimodal approach for the design of interventions and therapeutic programs is highlighted.
