Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) includes partnering with animals as co-therapists in the counselling session. Key features of AAT: specified goals and objectives for each individual, qualified professional involved in the animal interactions for a specific purpose, and progress is measured. Nature Assisted Therapy (NAT) uses nature in a therapeutic and healing capacity. Nature naturally soothes and calms the nervous system and helps with emotion regulation. Most people do not pay attention to the calming affects of nature and have recently become nature deprived due to an increase in indoor activities such as technology engagement. Connecting with a therapist in nature allows for reconnection and understanding of life's problems in an outdoor environment.
