Equine Therapy

Treatment Program

Equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) is an emerging treatment modality that utilizes horse-handling activities to generate powerful therapeutic metaphors-metaphors, symbolic and that reflect how each young woman relates to herself and others. With the support of peers and Rites equine specialist and attending clinical therapist, women examine these metaphors to gain insight into their fears, habits, and unconscious ways of relating. As issues arise within the equine setting, students have en-vivo opportunities to work toward the understanding and healing of those issues.
