    What is Consciously Connecting to Love through Horses using Equine Assisted Integration?

Equine Assisted Intergration (EAI) The horse acts as a large biofeedback machine, providing clients and the therapist with information regarding the client’s moods and changes within those moods. If a client arrives anxious the horse will act and respond one way. If the client is able to reduce his or her anxiety, the horse’s behaviors will also change. This provides a plethora of information and skill building opportunities for both the client and the therapist.
What is Trauma Focused E.A.I.?
E.A.I.  is guided by TWO facilitators.  One, Dr. Pat Koch PhD,  psychotherpist and mental health professional and Kate Turner Mays Holistic and Energetic Equine Specialist with over 5000 hours of professional horsemanship.  Between us we have 50 years of horse experience and 40 years of professional and personal mental health work.

The T.F.-E.A.P.Model

  • The Team Approach – An Equine Specialist, a Mental Health professional, and horses work together with clients in all sessions
  • Focus on the ground – All sessions are on the ground with horses (no mounted work)
  • The primary focus is on making the relationship with the horse the most important thing.  Rather than instructing or directing solutions, we allow our clients to experiment, problem-solve, take risks, employ creativity, and find their own solutions that work best for them.
  • Code of Ethics – EA.P. has a code of ethics, and has a standard of professionalism and ethics.

The T.F.-E.A.P. Team

  • The Horse:  Horses have many characteristics which lend them to being effective agents of change, including honesty, awareness, and ability with nonverbal communication.  The role of the horses in a E.A.I.P./E.A.I. session is to be themselves.
  • The Equine Specialist (ES):  The ES chooses the horses to be used in sessions, works with the MH to develop activities, keeps an equine log to document horse behaviors in sessions, stays aware of safety and welfare of clients, horses, and team, and makes observations of horses which can bring in potential metaphors.
  • The Mental Health Professional (MH):  The MH is responsible for treatment planning, documentation of clients, and ensuring ethical practice.  The MH builds on the ES’s horse observations, bringing in the metaphoric and therapeutic/learning relevance of the session.
