Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy
Healthy Care Solutions is the exclusive partner of Unbridled Hope, a non-profit that provides equine assisted therapy to the Eastern Idaho community. Equine–assisted psychotherapy (EAP) is an increasingly popular experiential treatment. It is best suited to children, couples, families, and people with significant trauma histories. Unbridled Hope also offers groups that are well suited to corporate team building.
In EAP sessions individuals interact with horses in a variety of activities, including grooming, feeding, walking and equine games, for improving their psychological health. EAP builds clients’ insights and self-observations as they process their interactions with a clinician. At Unbridled Hope, all EAP is facilitated by a licensed mental health clinician (clinical social workers or professional counselors).
