The Hero’s Journey- Equine Assisted

September 12 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

The Hero’s Journey for PTSD

Equine assisted activities have been shown to be effective in treating a variety of physical, developmental, and emotional needs. Because they combine experiential learning with the opportunity to explore feelings, equine assisted activities provide coping tools for dealing with relationship and communication problems, anger and stress management, adjustment disorders, and maladaptive behaviour patterns, among many other difficulties.

In recent years, Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) has shown promise in helping our first responders, veterans and those with who care for them cope with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)1

Participants who completed a supervised equine program reported dramatically reduced stress levels.

Drs. Allan and Diane Hamilton own “Rancho Bosque”, one of the premier centres in the United States for equine-facilitated learning and therapy, is pleased to offer a one-day clinic specifically designed for first responders and veterans.

During these sessions, participants will explore their own Hero’s Journey, and will have the opportunity to dig deep into their feelings and experiences to learn new ways to thrive despite PTSD. This program will be supervised by Drs. Allan and Jane Hamilton, both internationally recognized experts in the field of EAT.

Date: Thursday, September 12, 2019

Where: Belvoir Estate Farm & Equestrian Centre. 2475 Gideon Drive, Delaware, ON, Canada

No experience with horses is necessary, and participants will work with horses on the ground.
