dc.description.abstract Recent studies have shown that the potential role of pets in the satisfaction of certain needs of man is greater than was previously realized. In this study it was decided to investigate what value pets might hold for mentally retarded individuals. Forty individuals were involved, 20 of whom were given pets, and 20 were used as a control group. The clinical interpretation and integration of the findings suggest an improvement in language usage, independence, social behaviour, aggressive behaviour, rebellious behaviour and withdrawal behaviour in the experimental group. In total, it can be concluded that the pet programme contributed significantly to an improvement in aspects of socially adaptive behaviour, and to a significant decrease in deviant behaviour in this group of institutionalized mentally retarded individuals. en
