Somatic Experiencing® and the Horse-Human Relationship

ONLINE - Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute

90-minute webinar hosted by the Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute

2:30pm Eastern Standard Time / 12:30pm Mountain Time

Somatic Experiencing® is grounded in ethology, which is the study of animal behaviour under natural conditions (and less-optimal circumstances). The ethological study of horses and humans shows many parallels between these two species, which has important implications for horse-human relationships in a variety of contexts: equine-assisted psychotherapy and learning, therapeutic (or adaptive) riding, horse training, equine behaviour consultation, equestrian pursuits, horsemanship coaching, equine health services, research, and horse ownership in general.

This webinar will explore the broad implications of SE™ in horse-human relationships. Information about the EQUUSOMA® Horse-Human Trauma Recovery model and training will also be provided.

Learning Objectives:
      • Explore the parallels between horses and humans from an ethological perspective
      • Understand the intersections between ethology and the polyvagal theory
      • Appreciate horse-human interactions from an interspecies trauma-informed perspective.
