Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), particularly the EAGALA model, is a new, largely untapped resource. The EAGALA model uses a team-based approach and is performed by a mental health practitioner and an trained equine professional. The model has been found to be particularly useful with clients who are largely unresponsive to typical office treatment. This brown bag lunch workshop will begin to scratch the surface on some of the research studies that have already been conducted, the basic framework of the EAGALA model (one of many EAP programs), and how this continuingly developing therapy is currently being used with different populations. This workshop is appropriate for any level of clinician.
