What is Equine Assisted Psychotherapy?
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is a form of psychotherapy incorporating a mental health professional, an equine specialist, and horses. EAP has proven to have a profound impact on individuals, couples, families, and groups. It addresses a variety of mental health needs including chemical dependency, depression, grief and loss, eating disorders, anxiety, communication issues, attention deficit disorders, autism spectrum disorder, emotional and behavioral issues, and relationship challenges.

Why is this beneficial?
This therapeutic approach assists clients in reconnecting with their emotions and owning their feelings.  In a safe environment, clients are provided an opportunity to step into an experience that will help facilitate their ability to ‘see’ their behaviors and how those behaviors impact self and others. All activities are completed on the ground.  No horseback riding or knowledge of horses required.

Child (grades 1-5)
Middle Youth (grades 6-8)
Teen (grades 9-12)
Each day, youth participate in five hours of the best evidence-based psychotherapeutic care, as well as two hours of school. Special education teachers from Duluth public schools are available to assure students stay on track and experience seamless transitions between Amberwing and their school.

Substance Use Disorder Intervention (ages 12-18)

Effective intervention when a teen is using alcohol or other drugs requires a comprehensive, compassionate approach. As part of partial hospitalization programming, our Amberwing Teen Program Team provides group psychoeducation and individual coaching to help teens address their substance use. If a higher level of care is needed, staff are able to provide referrals to assist the teen and family.

Anthony Louis Center – Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation for Teens

Despite your best efforts, there may come a day when your teen is in need of medical intervention for drugs or alcohol. When it comes to dealing with these issues, the Anthony Louis Center understands that you need a team of specialists on your side that can be sensitive and receptive to your child. Teen drug use is a challenge for all involved, but you don’t have to lose hope.

How is Treatment for Teens Different from Adult Treatment?

During the teen years, the brain is not fully developed, meaning that teens are particularly susceptible to drug abuse and alcohol use. In truth, many teens are insulated from the full consequences of their actions because they still live at home and may not be responsible for supporting themselves.

In addition, research shows that teens prefer a different suite of drugs than adults, and even when they use the same drugs, they use them with a different intent such as seeking a fun high rather than a release from the stress of a job or relationship.

All of these factors combined mean that teen treatment involves a different approach that includes helping teens understand the real consequences on the table. It also includes helping them develop better coping strategies for the stresses they do experience.

Changing Gaits, Inc

EQUINE THERAPY

We entrust horses to show us the way back to health. Work and observation in the horse world lends itself to extremely powerful metaphors into our own patterns, strengths, and nonverbal messages we send out.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) & Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL)

Equine-assisted work honors the natural behavior of horses and herds. Horses are skilled at keeping themselves safe and are adept at survival. Their natural behaviors are optimal for mental and physical health. In many respects, we as humans have lost the instinct to keep ourselves safe and healthy. We entrust horses to show us the way back to health. Work and observation in the horse world lends itself to extremely powerful metaphors into our own patterns, strengths, and nonverbal messages we send out.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) implements the power of equine-assisted philosophies and exercises to introduce therapy clients to themselves in a morality that has been found to be more efficient and less threatening than traditional talk therapy.

Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) is a field of practice based on the successes of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). We have learned that everyone can benefit from equine-assisted work – not just therapy clients. Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) uses equine-assisted philosophies and exercises in a variety of arenas including parenting and family dynamics, personal coaching, church groups, corporate retreats, and more.

EAP and EAL can help with emotional and behavioral issues, anger management, marriage and relationship issues, abuse and addiction, mental health issues including PTSD, and more. We also work with special needs children and kids that are just going through a tough time.
