Assessing the Human-Animal Bond: A Compendium of Actual Measures

by

Assessing the Human-Animal Bond: A Compendium of Actual Measures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book gathers, in one place, those measures presently used to study the human-companion animal bond. The measures chosen for inclusion are the most heavily used by researchers, as well as measures that appear to be innovative or relate to the different aspects of the human-companion animal relationship. The measures cover the human-animal bond principally by attachment, but also by fear, abuse, or neglect.

Book News Annotation:

With research confirming that pet companions can improve human health, the human-animal bond has become an accepted focus of multidisciplinary scientific study. This volume assists researchers by presenting validated measures to choose from in this pursuit. Each section features a single measure, one of 22 Pet Attachment/ Attitude/Care scales, in reproducible pages. Entries include the measure's name, citations, information on its development, uses, other relevant notes, and copyright notice. An index-cum-annotated bibliography covers scales presented in the main section and details on related measures. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
