Animal Assisted Mindfulness Intervention (AAMI) for Patients With Acquired Brain Injury


Brief description of study

The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of an animal assisted mindfulness intervention (AAMI) on patients with acquired brain injuries on their global severity of psychological distress.

In addition, the effects on the patients' symptoms of depression, anxiety, perceived stress, mood, coping and mindfulness/self-compassion will be assessed.

The study experimental condition consists of 6 weeks of intervention, containing 6 different modules. In every session, an animal will be present.

In the control condition, the same program and same exercises will be used without the presence of or reference to animals. Sessions take place two times a week for 6 weeks (leading up to a total of 12 experimental/control sessions), each lasting for about 60 minutes.

24 participants will be included, 12 patients in each group.
