INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR ANIMAL ASSISTED THERAPY
The “International Society for Animal Assisted Therapy” (ISAAT) is a worldwide non-profit organization dedicated to assure quality in the practice of animal assisted interventions.
ISAAT accredits curricula for continuing education for persons working in the field of animal-assisted interventions, as well as basic training for human-dog-AAI-teams.
Our accreditation process follows strict criteria regarding the qualification of those teaching in the curricula, minimum hours of courses, course content, and exams. ISAAT has independent, international reviewers to assure an objective accreditation process.
Moreover, ISAAT promotes official recognition of animal assisted interventions as a valid therapeutic or pedagogic form of intervention which supports salutogenesis.
ISAAT works toward official recognition of persons who have studied accredited curricula as specialists for animal assisted interventions in their respective fields of professional work.
