This hands on workshop is an overview of Equine-assisted Mental Health and Learning (EAMHL). Together we will experience theories that inform and develop the practice of EAMHL, introduce some of the history and development of the field, and create an awareness of some of the elements of safe, effective, ethical practice. Participants will become familiar with current research, professional organizations, certification programs as well as issues facing the field.
