In this article, the Author aims to delineate the therapeutic value of domestic animals (Pets) in the family environment and in care settings, tracking psycho-educational aspects as well as therapeutic objectives. In particular, within a familiar developmental model and in the zooanthropology approach, which considers the interactive process between animals and humans, the study outlines the characteristics of a care setting as well as those therapists who are involved in a hetero-specific meeting, in which a co-partnership and its therapeutic value is emphasised. On the assumption that pets do not constitute medication nor are they supporters of miraculous cures, the Author focuses on Pet relationship Activities assisted by two co-therapists (human and animal), aimed at the education on policy and rehabilitation benefits, as well as at the cross over between individual and family risk or at psychopathological treatment. The focus of the article is specifically directed at several dimensions: Pet therapy and Zooanthropology in new families; Pet relationship and its methodological issues and perspectives; Pet relationship as a hetero-specific meeting in adolescence.
Keywords: Pet relationship, Zooanthropology, Pet therapy, Pet pedagogy, new families, care settings.
