Equine Assisted Psychotherapy with Young People
A one-day workshop intended for those working with young people, or interested in doing so, and those interested in incorporating horses into their practice with young people. Participants will gain an introductory level understanding of working with young people through equine-facilitated activities. The workshop is experiential in nature and participants will experience for themselves the LEAP approach to working with young people in the following areas:
- establishing trust
- communicating effectively
- managing arousal levels
- setting and maintaining safe and appropriate boundaries
- recognizing, understanding and moderating emotions
- developing an approach to life that foster an attitude of 'gentle leadership'
- working as a team
- creating a safe environment
The day will be divided into two parts, introducing a model of working with young people that incorporates Native American-inspired horsemanship and the LEAP Care Program®.
