I’ll be adding regular news and interesting articles to this page in the near future…
Pat Ogden and Janina Fisher, have a new book that is available to pre order, called Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment.
Leading Psychological Trauma Experts have validated and endorsed the importance of this contribution, Daniel Siegel, Stephen Porges, (PolyVagal Theory), Bessel Van Der Kolk, Beatrice Beebe.
We are all eagerly awaiting this masterpiece.
Dr Dan Siegel who my clients have heard so much of, says and I quote:
‘Sensorimotor Psychotherapy blends theory and technique from cognitive and dynamic therapy with straightforward somatic awareness and movement interventions…..that promote empowerment and competency’.
Confer : ‘EQUINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY AND HOW DOES IT WORK’ 23.01.16
Attended an excellent CPD day on Saturday in London, with brilliant speakers, Michael Delaney, Dr. Neil Brenner, Dr. Kim Brown, Dr. Jemma Hockley.
Mike Delaney says:
‘Horses respond to what is happening in the moment and mirror what human body language is telling them- emotional congruence’
It was good to hear the Triune Brain brought into it, by Dr. Brenner, Horses are emotionally sensitive. I have also experienced people suffering with addictions are very sensitive too.
Horses have a relatively small brain but large Limbic Brain for survival. Horses constantly scan the landscape.
Horses used in a therapeutic way with people suffering from addiction after detox works very well. People suffering from addictions, don’t have boundaries ie no limits, and when being introduced to working therapeutically with EAP its very important to put the boundaries in before commencing.
Such an informative day and so great to meet with people who really get the importance of the Horse in therapy.
