    The Animal-Human Bond and Ethnic Diversity. By: Risley-Curtiss, Christina; Holley, Lynn C.; Wolf, Shapard. Social Work, Jul2006, Vol. 51 Issue 3, p257-268, 12p Abstract: Affectionate relationships with animal companions have health-enhancing effects on people and enrich their quality of life, and the majority of families with companion animals regard their animals as family members. Research has also suggested that these relationships are complicated and vary depending on a number of factors, yet there has been almost no exploration of ethnic diversity in relationships with companion animals. This descriptive study explores the relationships among race and ethnicity, beliefs about companion animals, and ownership practices. Findings indicate that in many instances there were no statistical differences by ethnicity. Nonetheless, describing oneself as white, American Indian, or both was associated with being more likely to have companion animals. Those identifying themselves as of Hispanic or Spanish origin were less likely to have cats and to have their cat or dog spayed or neutered and more likely to say they get a sense of personal safety from their dog or cat. The implications of these findings are discussed, and suggestions for research and practice are offered. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 22702488)

    And Then the Dog Died. By: Kaufman, Kenneth R.; Kaufman, Nathaniel D.. Death Studies, Jan/Feb2006, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p61-76, 16p Abstract: Childhood grief and mourning of family and friends may have immediate and long-lasting consequences including depression, anxiety, social withdrawal, behavioral disturbances, and school underachievement. Childhood pet bereavement is no less important, because the pet is often considered a member of the family by the child. However, society does not always acknowledge the significance of pet bereavement, which can result in unresolved grief. This article, a case analysis with literature review, addresses childhood pet bereavement in the context of multiple prior losses (K. R. Kaufman & N. D. Kaufman, 2005). This case mirrors both old and new findings in grief research and therapy: (a) beneficial response to emotional expression of grief in context of search for meaning; (b) beneficial response to cognitive approach toward grief with ability to prevent development of complicated grief even in the face of multiple losses; (c) beneficial effects associated with supportive family and with positive self-concept; (d) intensity of grief magnified by the child's degree of attachment to the pet, the suddenness of the pet's death, the multiple prior losses, and the role of the pet in the child's life; and (e) resiliency. This case further emphasizes the need for parents not to trivialize death of pets, to appreciate the role pets have in children's lives, and to assist the child in multiple approaches toward expression (be it verbal, written, or artistic). Finally, this case reinforces the ability of the child to assist in family bereavement and to serve as teacher. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1080/07481180500348811 (AN 18908649)

    Nontraditional Therapies for the PICU -- Part 2. By: McDowell, Betsy M.. Journal for Specialists in Pediatric Nursing, Apr-Jun2005, Vol. 10 Issue 2, p81-85, 5p; Abstract: Presents an answer to a query about the incorporation of nontraditional therapies such as pet therapy into pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) setting.

    Resident and therapist views of animal-assisted therapy: Implications for occupational therapy practice. By: Velde, Beth P.; Cipriani, Joseph; Fisher, Grace. Australian Occupational Therapy Journal, Mar2005, Vol. 52 Issue 1, p43-50, 8p Abstract: Animal-assisted therapy is offered in a wide variety of settings. The literature contains few studies investigating animal-assisted therapy from an occupational therapy perspective. More information is needed to describe the use of animals as a therapeutic modality in occupational therapy. Three qualitative case studies were analysed to describe the perceptions of clients and therapists regarding animal-assisted therapy. This analysis was synthesised with an extensive literature review to produce a perspective of animal-assisted therapy for occupational therapy. Animal-assisted therapy could be a beneficial modality for occupational therapy. The Lifestyle Performance Model provides a useful framework for analysis and interpretation of the positive outcomes of animal-assisted therapy in an occupational therapy context.

    Research and Reflection: Animal-Assisted Therapy in Mental Health Settings. By: Parshall, Debra Phillips. Counseling & Values, Oct2003, Vol. 48 Issue 1, p47, 10p Abstract: Although animals have been historically associated with promoting physical and mental health benefits for humans, only recently has there been support for such claims in the literature. This article is a preliminary attempt to bring together scientific studies and anecdotal reports that provide evidence of the benefits of using animals in particular counseling situations.

    Add AddedREDUCTION OF STATE-ANXIETY BY PETTING ANIMALS IN A CONTROLLED LABORATORY EXPERIMENT. By: Shiloh, Shoshana; Sorek, Gal; Terkel, Joseph. Anxiety, Stress & Coping, Dec2003, Vol. 16 Issue 4, p387-395, 9p Abstract: The effect on anxiety of petting an animal and the underlying mechanisms of such an effect were examined by a repeated-measures, within-session experiment with 58 non-clinical participants. Participants were exposed to a stressful situation in the laboratory - the presence of a Tarantula spider, which they were told they might be asked to hold - and then randomly assigned to one of five groups: petting a rabbit, a turtle, a toy rabbit, a toy turtle or to a control group. Participants' attitudes towards animals were measured as potential moderators. State-anxiety was assessed at baseline, after the stress manipulation, and after the experimental manipulation. The main findings showed that petting an animal reduced state-anxiety. This effect could not be attributed to the petting per se , since it was observed only with animals and not with matched toys. The anxiety-reducing effect of petting an animal applied to both the soft cuddly animals and the hard-shelled ones. The anxiety-reducing effect applied to people with different attitudes towards animals and was not restricted to animal lovers. The discussion addresses possible emotional and cognitive foundations of the observed effects and their implications. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 11281068)

    Critters in the cube farm: Perceived psychological and organizational effects of pets in the workplace. Wells, Meredith; Perrine, Rose; Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, Vol 6(1), Jan 2001. pp. 81-87. [Journal Article] Abstract: This article reports the findings of an exploratory study examining the perceived functions and psychological and organizational effects of pets in the workplace. Participants were 193 employees from 31 companies allowing pets in the workplace who completed anonymous questionnaires. Results indicated that participants perceived pets in the workplace to reduce stress and to positively affect employee health and the organization. Participants who brought their pets to work perceived greater benefits than participants who did not bring their pets to work and participants who did not own pets.

    Pets, Attachment, and Well-Being across the Life Cycle. By: Sable, Pat. Social Work, May95, Vol. 40 Issue 3, p334-341, 8p; Abstract: The article explores ways in which family pets, particularly dogs and cats, provide certain components of attachment that contribute to emotional and social well-being throughout the life cycle. The article uses an ethological framework of attachment developed by I. Bowlby and the social provisions of relationships delineated by researcher R.S. Weiss. (AN 9505191455)

    Playing with pets and longevity among older people. Tucker, Joan S.; Friedman, Howard S.; Tsai, Catherine M.; Psychology and Aging, Vol 10(1), Mar 1995. pp. 3-7. [Journal Article] Abstract: Models of the relations between contact with pets and better health are examined in an archival prospective study using data derived from the longitudinal study initiated by Terman in 1921 (current N = 343 men, 300 women) . In survival analyses of documented longevity, playing with pets in 1977 (M age = 67 years) was not associated with mortality risk through 1991 for the total sample nor for those who were unmarried or those who were less satisfied with their human relationships. Playing with pets was not associated with health-prone attributes or healthy behaviors such as personality, social ties, education, and smoking.

    Presence of human friends and pet dogs as moderators of autonomic responses to stress in women. Allen, Karen M.; Blascovich, Jim; Tomaka, Joe; Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Vol 61(4), Oct 1991. pp. 582-589. [Journal Article] Abstract: Autonomic responses were measured while 45 adult women performed a standard experimental stress task in the laboratory with only the experimenter present and 2 wks later at home in the presence of a female friend, pet dog, or neither. Results demonstrated that autonomic reactivity was moderated by the presence of a companion, the nature of whom was critical to the size and direction of the effect. Ss in the friend condition exhibited higher physiological reactivity and poorer performance than Ss in the control and pet conditions. Ss in the pet condition showed less physiological reactivity during stressful tasks than Ss in the other conditions. Results are interpreted in terms of the degree to which friends and pets are perceived as evaluative during stressful task performance. Physiological reactivity was consistent across the laboratory and field settings. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

    Add AddedELDERLY-ANIMAL FRIENDSHIP BONDS. By: Pereytti, Peter O.. Social Behavior & Personality: An International Journal, 1990, Vol. 18 Issue 1, p151-156, 6p Abstract: Studies have been done which have found attachments between people and their pets. The present study was conducted to determine the variables of the elderly-animal friendship bond. The study focused on self-perceived criteria of the aged regarding their intimate association with their dogs. Results indicated self-perceived variables of companionship, emotional bond, usefulness, loyalty and no negotiation. There were significant differences in responses between the male and female Ss with regard to the variables of loyalty and no negotiation. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 12951933)

    The Dog As "Significant Other" By: Bikales, Gerda. Social Work, Mar75, Vol. 20 Issue 2, p150-152, 3p; Abstract: The article presents the author's experience about the importance of pets in life of some people. As a social worker in a large urban hospital serving an inner-city population, this author seems to have uncovered a widespread but hitherto unreported phenomenon-the canine client. It was, a colleague, in fact who first brought it up at a discussion meeting with other colleagues. She recounted her tribulations in attempting to provide custodial care for a patient's pet. Her sad ruminations brought forth a chorus of instant recognition and the somewhat stunned realization that they had discovered a sleeper in casework practice. A quick check with colleagues in other urban hospitals and nursing homes confirmed that these were not isolated instances but an integral part of many caseloads. One worker has personally taken in several animals on a temporary basis and has even had them boarded at the homes of her less-than-willing relatives. Another managed to house an elderly cat, against regulations, in the sub-basement of the hospital. Most enterprising, perhaps, was the worker who had her son's first-grade class adopt a client's parrot for much of the school year. (AN 5267166)
