Equine Assisted Psychotherapy with Young People
This one day workshop is 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-assisted activities. The workshop is experiential in nature and will not rely heavily on printed materials; instead, 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 Code Breakers program.
A longer training in currently in it's planning phases, and this course will be a pre-requisite.
