Welcome to Module 1: Part 2.

pEATT 1:2 focuses on the theoretical components of Psychodynamic Equine Assisted Traumatherapy. In this course, we look at the essentials when it comes to traumawork - the elements, how to structure sessions, what to look for to ensure a „safe" environment for all: clients - horses - and team members. We take a closer look at combat related Posttraumatic Stress ("dis"-order) and give you an insight into the military structure - its elements and building blocks. While taking a first look at complex PTS(d), we focus more and more on the horse, to highlight what the horse, as equal team member with respect for his/her differences, actually contributes to sessions. (10:45 hrs, incl. 2 hrs of online supervision)

Cost: 460,- Euros (incl. appl. taxes/fees)

Main Instructors: Ilka Parent and Eric Warhonowicz from Minds-n-Motion, Katarina Lundgren from MiMer Centre
