Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) research has indicated that the human-animal bond has numerous benefits. Currently, the use of animal companions in the supervision process is nonexistent. Audience members will learn new methods in conducting supervision utilizing an animal companion using Bordin’s (1983) supervisory working alliance model. We will describe how to incorporate AAT into supervision, provide techniques, the practicality of use, safety measures, use in different supervision formats and procedures while giving consideration to multicultural perspectives.
