Event description
Trauma training for professionals in the field of horse-human relationship facilitation

About this Event

*Formation offerte en anglais. Traduction informelle pour faciliter la compréhension disponible en français et en allemand. Participant(e)s devront avoir un niveau d'anglais adéquat pour suivre la formation.

  • Are you an equine-assisted psychotherapy or equine-assisted learning practitioner or equine professional who wants to become more trauma-informed and enhance your work with people and equines through the lens of nervous system co-regulation and attachment dynamics?
  • Are you a Somatic Experiencing® student or practitioner (or similarly-trained professional) curious about how equine-assisted practice can support your trauma recovery work and how SE™ can be applied to the horses themselves?
  • Are you a health, helping, healing, learning or coaching professional who is interested in learning more about trauma-informed care and horse-human interactions?

Do you believe that healing and growth for one cannot occur at the expense of another, and that both equines and humans are deserving of consent, choice and a voice?

Consider the EQUUSOMA® Training for your continuing education goals.

Summary

EQUUSOMA® provides a grounding in the principles of trauma-informed care, relevant Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) skills and frameworks applied in the context of trauma recovery for equines and humans, and practical applications of the neuroscience of attachment theory and polyvagal theory around the power of safety in relationships.

The material aligns with modern ethology about what we know about equines as social, herd-oriented creatures who naturally seek affiliation and connection and only mount self-protective responses or dominance when necessary or under stress or adverse conditions. Humans, too, are built for social engagement and connection first, and have the capacity to mount stress and survival responses when necessary. Both humans and equines can experience attachment ruptures and trauma, and experience re-enactments of familiar patterns of misattunement with one another. These patterns reinforce old beliefs and nervous system responses that contribute to an ongoing felt sense of helplessness, danger or life threat, that relationships are not safe, and that things don’t change.

However, for both equines and humans, trauma and attachment ruptures can be healed in relationship.

EQUUSOMA® Fundamentals Training

The Fundamentals Training is a foundational introduction to the material. The focus is on learning the core theory, principles, and frameworks that define this work and experiencing horse-human interactions as an individual being facilitated by the trainer and the training assistants. This is to allow training participants an opportunity to experience the body-based interventions personally and to work on their own inner awareness, regulation, containment, and attunement first. Some opportunities will also be provided for pairs and group practices.

This is the first step towards completing the full certificate program.
