Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is an experiential method of psychotherapy. It is unique in that horses are incorporated into the therapy session as facilitators. A mental health provider and equine specialist work with the client(s) and horses through various tasks or assignments to address a variety of issues. All exercises on done "on the ground". EAP does not require a person to like horses or have any horse experience. However, even those experienced with horses will find EAP challenging. EAP can be used to assist with a variety of issues such as addictions, anxiety, anger, attention deficit disorder, abuse, bipolar disorder, depression, grief, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, and trauma. EAP can also be used to address assertiveness, confidence, responsibility, relationships and communication. EAP can be used with individuals, families or groups. Partnerships can be created with individual therapists and treatment programs to create and customize adjunct equine facilitated services for their client(s).
