Do you want to have fun at work and learn from a whole New Point of View?
Try something new, have fun, and build team and leadership effectiveness all at once. (No riding involved)
- New Point of View sessions include 2 to 3 activities involving horses (no riding involved) in an indoor arena.
- Client(s) work directly with horses face-to-face on the same footing. Customized activities are designed based on desired outcomes expressed by the client(s). This ground level work enables client(s) to better perceive the horse’s actions and reactions as they work through activities to process and solve their life challenges. Under the trained eye of the EAGALA Treatment Team, horses offer client(s) instant and honest feedback by mirroring emotions. This valuable feedback provides information that helps them understand how their emotional disposition and corresponding actions affect others and impacts their lives outside of the arena.
- Each session begins with a discussion of the activity (e.g. move the horse around a barrel without the use of equipment and with limited touching). The client(s) can talk about a plan on how to achieve the activity before it begins but once the activity begins only limited discussion (or no discussion) is permitted. In this positive, non-threatening environment, while performing the assigned tasks with the horses, clients are provided a unique opportunity to practice vital life skills including relationship building, respect, empathy, responsibility, establishing boundaries, impact of choices, and consequences. Once the session is complete, we move to a conference room to discuss metaphors based on the activities and how they apply to real-life situations. NOTE: The value in this unique type of therapy is based on the process and notaccomplishment of activity.
