How Will TF-EAP Help Survivors?
Horses provide a safe, yet honest environment that allows us to be vulnerable and real. They live in the present so they don’t prejudge people like humans do. Horses are immediate biofeedback machines and will pick up on incongruency in a client that a human therapist cannot. Because horses are prey animals, their brains are naturally very similar to that of a traumatized human brain; they live in survival mode.
Horses provide opportunities to practice assertive communication, set boundaries, make requests, learn emotional regulation skills, and build trust and confidence in a mutual partnership. All of the skills used to build relationship with the horse are transferable outside the round pen to human relationships.
As an experiential therapy, results are quicker than many traditional therapies, long lasting and comprehensive. Learn More
