FREE DEMO opportunity to come spend some time learning about a very cutting edge therapeutic model that we have easy access to here in our region!
I have attached both the therapy part of her program as well as the summer camp offered to middle school age kids!
DEMO Friday, June 17th from 9-12PM, at Indigo Moon Farm, Strafford NH, there will be a demonstration of the EAGALA model-this is an equine assisted therapy for those in recovery or with addictions… DOWNLOADABLE FLYER.
“Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) incorporates horses experientially for mental and behavioral health therapy and personal development. It is a collaborative effort between a licensed therapist and a horse professional working with the clients and horses to address treatment goals. Because of its intensity and effectiveness, it is considered a short-term, or “brief” approach.
EAP is experiential in nature. This means that participants learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, and then processing (or discussing) feelings, behaviors, and patterns. This approach has been compared to the ropes courses used by therapists, treatment facilities, and human development courses around the world. But EAP has the added advantage of utilizing horses, dynamic and powerful living beings.
EAP is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on individuals, youth, families, and groups. EAP addresses a variety of mental health and human development needs including behavioral issues, attention deficit disorder, PTSD, substance abuse, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and communication needs.
