Will I receive a Certificate of Completion?
Once you complete all the required sections of the course site, you will automatically receive a Certificate of Completion for "Equine-Assisted Expressive Arts Therapy "
If I do not currently provide Equine-Assisted Therapy, why should I take this course?
Equine-Assisted approaches are increasingly becoming part of work with trauma survivors as well as other individuals with various challenges. In this course, we will explore how equine impact therapy sessions by their presence; there will not be any "on-horses" component to this training. Gaining a deeper understanding of these approaches is important to all practitioners who work with individuals with traumatic stress. Various approaches found in Polyvagal Theory, sensorimotor and bilateral stimulation methods, and expressive arts therapy are foundational to equine-assisted treatment.
Does this course count toward the EXAT and EXA-CE designations?
Yes, of course! This is great opportunity to add to your knowledge of how expressive work can be integrated with equine-assisted work and understand the principles that support this integration.
