What is it?
Psychotherapy (sometimes called “talk therapy”) is a term for a variety of treatment techniques that aim to help a person identify and change troubling emotions, thoughts, and behavior. Most psychotherapy takes place with a licensed and trained mental health care professional and a patient meeting one on one or with other patients in a group setting. Equine facilitated psychotherapy takes place at the barn, outside, with a Mental Health Professional, Equine Specialists, and Horse.
A pilot study at Fort Carson, CO showed that equine therapy and learning reduced the risk of violence by veterans by 24%. Even more remarkable, the rate of suicide was reduced by 62%.
The work may be hard, but the outcome will be worth it.
