Horses can teach us so much about being fully present in the moment. This is an important aspect of helping someone recover from trauma. Our ability to be present, regulated and manage our internal response. This workshop will include experiences in the outdoors with horses and some theory input.
The workshop will take place in a rural setting. Participants will need to wear study footwear and clothing suitable for the weather conditions on the day.
Aims: To provide participants with an understanding of the stabilisation stage of working with psychological trauma. How early trauma affects development of the brain and the most appropriate interventions to support recovery. There will be an emphasis upon the importance of self-awareness and establishing safety for clients. This will be facilitated through the experience of equine assisted learning.
