What is Child Abuse? Child abuse is the physical, sexual or emotional maltreatment or neglect of a child or children. Child abuse can occur in a child’s home, or in the organizations, schools or communities the child interacts with.

What is post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD? PTSD is a real illness. You can get PTSD after living through or seeing a dangerous event, such as war, a hurricane, or bad accident. PTSD makes you feel stressed and afraid after the danger is over. It affects your life and the people around you. If you have PTSD, you can get treatment and feel better.
Who gets PTSD? PTSD can happen to anyone at any age. Children get PTSD too. You don't have to be physically hurt to get PTSD. You can get it after you see other people, such as a friend or family member, get hurt.
Equine Therapy What is equine therapy? Equine Therapy is a therapy that uses the horse as a therapeutic tool and is divided into two areas: Hypotherapy Therapeutic riding
Equine Therapy Equine Therapy covers the integration of four different professional fields. • Medicine: plays an important role in hypotherapy because sitting on horseback is used as a physical therapy for patients with neurological dysfunction that have neuromotor, traumatic or degenerative origins. • Psychology y Education: are directly affected by therapeutic riding and when combined with psychotherapy therapeutic riding treat psychomotor, sensomotor and sociomotor dysfunctions. • Sport: riding as a sport gives people with certain physical and functional disabilities the opportunity to fully integrate into a sporting life.
Hypotherapy Works with people who have neuromotor disorders with neurological, traumatic, degenerative or genetic origins. Within hypotherapy we use two methods: Passive and Active therapy. • Passive therapy: the patient passively adjusts to the movement of the horse without any action on their part, drawing heat body, the rhythmic impulses and the shape of the three-dimensional horse. It uses the "back riding" technique where the therapist sits behind the patient to support and align during the ride. • Active therapy: adds to the passive adaptation neuromuscular exercises to stimulate greater standardization of muscle tone, balance, coordination and psychomotor symmetry and body exercises neurosensory stimulation to increase neuronal synapses and brain plasticity.
What is EAP? Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) incorporates horses experientially for emotional growth and learning. It is a collaborative effort between a licensed therapist and a horse professional working with the clients and horses to address treatment goals. Because of its intensity and effectiveness, it is considered a short-term, or "brief" approach. EAP is experiential in nature. This means that participants learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, and then processing (or discussing) feelings, behaviors, and patterns. This approach has been compared to the ropes courses used by therapists, treatment facilities, and human development courses around the world. But EAP has the added advantage of utilizing horses, dynamic and powerful living beings. EAP is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on individuals, youth, families, and groups. EAP addresses a variety of mental health and human development needs including behavioral issues, attention deficit disorder, PTSD, substance abuse, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and communication needs.
What is EAL? Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is similar to EAP but where the focus is on learning or educational goals. EAL still involves the team of mental health professional and horse professional working with the clients and horses. The focus however is on education and learning specific skills as defined by the individual or group, such as improved product sales for a company, leadership skills for a school group, or resiliency training for our military warriors.
