Feeling My Oats-Equine-Assisted Learning Groups

Participate in Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) groups at North Star Therapeutic Services. Engage in learning activities with horses that promote confidence, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and encourage problem solving. Equine-Assisted Learning can help to develop and improve coping skills, while helping us become mentally and emotionally healthier. EAL helps develop skills in communication, problem solving, creativity, teamwork, boundaries, relationship building, responsibility, decision making, accountability, frustration tolerance, and stress management. These skills are built through exploring the space, interacting with the horses, and interacting with other participants. EAL creates a learning experience that encourages participants to learn from natural consequences, mistakes, and successes. It encourages spontaneous opportunities for learning in a space without judgment and pre-conceptions. Individualized learning in a group setting! Groups are offered in quarters and each quarter is 10 weeks: Fall Quarter, Winter Quarter, and Spring Quarter. Please visit NorthStarTherapeuticServices.com for more information on our programs and services.
