Identified as a comprehensive and integrative treatment approach, the current research on the neurological underpinnings of trauma is supportive of Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) as a treatment of choice for trauma treatment. EquiLateral™ is the Equine-Assisted EMDR Protocol, an innovate integration of Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and EMDR to become Equine-Assisted EMDR.
This three-hour Equine-Assisted EMDR (Preparation Phase) based workshop is designed to offer the attendees the opportunity to experience nurturing and inspiring opportunities in partnership with the equine. With the equine as co-facilitator of the experience, you are invited to share mindful experiences that echo foundational principles in working with trauma survivors. Through ground-based experiential activities co-facilitated with the equine, attendees will identify and explore concepts such as attunement, tolerance for calm, presence, as well as ways to experience an internal sense of equanimity whilst working, both on and off the mat, with the most complex examples of human suffering. Taught by Sarah Jenkins, MC, LPC.
