As we struggle to help our children, teens and even ourselves cope, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had some type of ‘early warning system’ that would let us know that our child/teen (or ourselves) we were starting to lose it? Well, there is technology on the way that might do this! In this article Dr. Mary Czerwinski talks about the fascinating work being done at Microsoft’s VIBE research laboratory.
Till the day when we get an actual message warning us that we are slipping down the slippery slope, we have to develop the ability to catch the warning signs on our own and implement strategies that will help us cope. That’s where we come in!
Through work with horses, we help our client recognize and name the feelings they are having. We help them understand how their out of control or inappropriate actions affect their horse, then we help them learn and practice a variety of more appropriate coping skills. From deep breathing to visualization, our clients learn to recognize when they are feeling angry, sad, frustrated and are give tools to help them work through these feelings in a more constructive way. At the end of the day there are no hard feelings and everyone wins!
If you or someone you know struggles with social, emotional or behavioral issues call or email us to schedule a visit. We will show you around, introduce you to our wonderful horses and share with you how we might be able to help with the challenges you are dealing with.
