Equine-assisted Parenting Labs
In partnership with Groundwork Ranch
As prey animals, horses are a lot like traumatized children; their survival depends on heightened awareness and knowing who to trust. That’s why working with horses offers a great opportunity for practicing parenting skills that are critical to developing a sense of safety and creating a healthy, healing home environment for children who have survived trauma. Parents learn and practice essential skills for managing challenging, trauma-based behaviors. These full day workshops are changing the way caregivers are parenting children from trauma.
Foster and kinship parents who would like to register for a Leader of the Herd session, should submit a Therapeutic Services Request.
