About this book

This book serves as a reference for social workers, psychologists, counselors, and other mental health professionals who utilize therapeutic farm therapy with their children or adult clients. The Brief is also valuable for policy makers at state mental health agencies and legislators, who must decide how to best utilize limited funding for mental health care. Chapters focus on the development of the therapeutic farm approach, various models of therapeutic farms in the U.S. and Europe, and case studies of specific therapeutic farms.

Reviews

“The book is concise and well written. The author achieves the goal of providing mental health professionals a look at the possibility of recovery for those patients suffering long-lasting illness, including addictions, personality disorders, and/or schizophrenia. It is an appealing presentation of Care Farms that suggests that community treatment over a longer period of time can be an effective approach for those struggling with mental illness and ease their re-entry into normal society.” (Viola Mecke, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (30), July, 2016)
