CR Partners with Natural Lifemanship Offering Trainings and
Workshops in Trauma-Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
Our approach to psychotherapy, learning and riding aligns with the principles of Natural Lifemanship Trauma-Focused Equine Assisted Psycotherapy: healthy relationships are built from understanding and learning healthy connection.
We've seen first-hand the progress that many of our clients make learning these skills with our equines, whether they are here as individuals or groups of teens in Hands on Horses, the benefits are many! EAP is often the best approach for treating trauma, depression and anxiety. Why? Because an equine is a partner in helping people stay present, focused and calm. Horses provide a presence of support, and because they are so sensitive to our emotions as expressed through body language and energy, they respond immediately to what they perceive about us, giving us feedback that is often surprising, but always useful in showing us who we are! Horses readily accept us as we are. Sometimes that is the most powerful message of support many of us need.
Twice a year, Changing Rein hosts an NL Fundamentals Workshop and the Intensive Workshop with NL trainers. The Fundamentals Workshop is June 6-7; the Intensive is September 25,26 and 27th. Registration is through NL's website.
Changing Rein Staff are also available to teach the basic principles of NL. Our staff has attended trainings and NL Conferences in 2018 and 2019.

From NL TF-EAP website:
As the original Trauma-Focused Equine Assisted PsychotherAPY (NL TF-EAP) NL is based on contemporary medical research that explains the physiological and psychological impact of chronic stress and traumatic insults on human development beginning in utero and through the lifespan. Founded on this science Natural Lifemanship views and treats psychological and behavioral disorders through a trauma lens by intentionally using horse physiology to regular human physiology and horse psychology to heal human psychology....the relationship between the client and their horse is the foundation for healing and every interaction between the horse and human, whether on the ground or mounted, has a therapeutic purpose.
