How to help children dealing with PTSD

Often it is so hard to know what to do to help someone in emotional pain.  This article gives a few simple suggestions.

PTSD actually causes chemical changes in the brain. The brain reverts to a more primitive way of functioning. The “flight or fight” mode kicks in much more easily…kind of like with horses! Through explaining horse behavior and how it is normal to feel what we feel, clients are often able to come to terms with their own PTSD issues.

We would love to share more with you about how our program works, give you a tour of the ranch and introduce you to our wonderful equine partners (the horses!) Call us to schedule a visit.
