"I can't say enough about Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. As a licensed clinician working with Deaf families, the collaboration with PBJ Connections and their EAP program has been able to push through the surface material and get to some of the underlying belief systems, communication patterns and even some subconscious anxieties that are played out within the family dynamics in subtle ways. For the families, it gives the adults and especially the children a concrete measure of "progress." For them, getting a halter on the horse is the goal. As the clinician involved, it is symbolic of the emotional growth that is taking place within the family. The "tangibility" of these abstract concepts keeps the family invested, and motivated to continue, despite frustration. In turn, this keeps the clinician and horse professional motivated and in tune with the family, and carries over for very effective processing during "non-barn" sessions." - Karen A. Tinsley , PC
