Healing Nature of Horses
Advanced Workshop ~ Communication
September 10, 2018
9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
This 1 day workshop provides 6 CEUs.
A workshop on how horses can help educators and therapists teach interpersonal communication skills.

In this workshop our focus will be the practice of helping individuals improve communication skills.  We will explore communication among horses in domestic herds, human-horse communication, and we will look at how humans can learn to improve their interpersonal communication skills by communicating more thoughtfully with horses.

This advanced workshop is designed for experienced mental health, life coach, education and equine professionals and to provide opportunities to explore focused topics on how horses can promote personal growth and healing. We will use a combination of lecture, demonstration, case studies and experiential activities on how the assistance horses can provide for healing and personal growth in specific areas. This course provides 6 CEUs. (See Registration page for more information. Also acceptable as PATH Intl. and CBEIP continuing educations hours).

This workshop is not based on any particular model of equine assisted therapy or education--rather we will look at how a variety of mounted and unmounted approaches can be combined into an effective session or workshop design and implementation. In additional, participants will meet and work with other professional sharing their interest and passion.
