With ‘Nature Heals’ allied health practitioners and therapists in Australia and New Zealand have a comprehensive, reliable and inspiring guide to the local practice of Nature-based, green and horticultural therapies. The authors have harnessed decades of practice in a range of therapeutic environments and distilled their collective knowledge into a readable text that comprehensively describes how to develop and deliver programs in this multi-disciplined technique. There are numerous case studies from the authors and more from colleagues across Australia and New Zealand that illustrate the technique as applied in a range of clinical environments where the work is currently being practiced or trialled.

This comprehensive snapshot of what is happening in Australia and New Zealand applies to a range of health care settings illustrating the stages and processes of utilising gardens and nature as therapy. The authors bring together theoretical and practical elements, from designing the program and settings, through to the delivery, reporting and evaluations. Facilitators share their stories on how to tailor programs to meet the diverse needs of specific groups. Case studies are provided for working with refugees, aged dementia care, mental illness, veterans, youth at risk, disabilities, prisoners, children, grief and carers.
