Dolphin assisted therapy is one of the methods of animal-assisted therapy (AAT) that is not a medical procedure. The main objects of medical and preventive impact are the key factors of the pathogenesis of neurological diseases, poorly amenable to other methods of treatment. The impact of dolphin and the physical stressors associated with sea bathing activates the patient’s behavior, forms his positive emotional attitude, mobilizes the reserves of the body, which becomes a favorable background for subsequent treatment and rehabilitation measures.
It should be noted that the term “Dolphin Assisted Therapy”, with all the variety of the meanings that we put in it, refers more to the physiological level, the positive changes on which occur mainly due to ultrasonic waves emitted by a dolphin sonar. The English term Dolphin Assisted Therapy (DAT) implies the participation of a dolphin in a session of psychocorrection, under the control and with the participation of specially trained specialist. And it is Dolphin Assisted Therapy, in other words psychocorrection with the participation of dolphins, we are engaged in.
