Equine Assisted Learning (EAP/EAL) is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that affect direct change on individuals, young people and families.
EAL are experiential in nature. This means that participants learn about themselves by taking part in activities with the horses, and then processing feelings, behaviours, and patterns with trained facilitators and mental health professionals.
EAL may present metaphors that mirror real life situations, and offer opportunities for experiencing how we are in our relationships with others. We can learn tools for new ways of relating and become more effective in all relationships, including the most important relationship, – the one with ourselves!
Key Teaching Themes included in the sessions are: Leadership, Mindfulness, Assertiveness, Nonverbal communication and Boundaries.
