Equine Inspired Ethics Download- January 2013 Flyer

This ethics and practice issues workshop provides attendees with an opportunity to develop greater self-awareness surrounding interpersonal and personal biases that can impact the therapeutic relationship.

In this four hour workshop therapists will participate in equine-assisted experiences and activities that provide opportunities to identify and explore patterns of projection and counter-transference that can impact the therapeutic process.  Practitioners learn, experientially, how these are ethical dilemmas that can be identified in the moment.

Attendees will also learn how to identify how these projections can cause “rips” in the therapeutic relationship that need “repairing” to create more positive treatment outcomes. Attendees will learn through case examples, hands on equine-assisted experiences, and interactive group discussions.

Recommended for Mental Health Professionals, Healing and Helping Professionals.
