EAP is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on individuals, families and groups of all ages. It is an experiential program in which horses are used to promote emotional growth and learning. The focus is not on riding or horsemanship. Interaction takes place on the ground. EAP activities will require the individual or group to apply certain skills. These include non verbal communication, assertiveness, creative thinking, problem solving and teamwork which work toward the development of a sense of personal responsibility, self confidence, and a positive attitude. The treatment modality addresses a variety of mental/emotional health and developmental needs. EAP effectively treats symptom from depression, anxiety, ADHD, substance abuse related issues, attachment disorders, eating disorders, etc. through the experience of building relationships with horses in their natural environment.
