As this CNN report shows, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence to support the effectiveness of Equine Therapy, but for many reasons, there continues to be limited ‘research’ that establish Equine Therapy as a quality, proven intervention for those with mental health and other issues.
However, Nevada Equine Assisted Therapy provides a quality, proven intervention – Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) – with horses as part of the treatment team! In this way, we are able to provide a service that has been shown to be incredibly effective and beneficial in a new and unique way.
Equine Assisted PSR can be help with many issues, including:
- Impulsivity/Lack of Focus
- Anger Management
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
- Pervasive Developmental Delays (PDD)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
We work with clients as young as 4 years of age, teens, adults and even seniors. Our team of Qualified Mental Health Associates (QMHA) work under the supervision of a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. We partner with our clients other providers and build on the work they are doing. Our sessions are one-on-one, with the client, their QMHA and the horse the client chooses to work with, focusing on that client’s specific goals and issues.
