Building Healthier Relationships through Equine Therapy
Group Therapy With Horses
Some of our students work with horses in a group therapy setting. The equine therapy groups utilize a combination of the EAGALA model and Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (TF-EAP).
The EAGALA model helps students identify how they function within groups. Students participate in a variety of activities in groups with horses that help them better understand how they interact with peers and their family. After utilizing the EAGALA model, students transition into using the TF-EAP model.
Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy helps students better understand patterns about themselves such as how they are communicating with others, the boundaries they set for themselves, and how safe they feel around people. We are able to identify these patterns based on a student’s interaction with the horses. We discuss and address the patterns we perceive during TF-EAP during family therapy and individual therapy sessions.
