New book just released this fall
The book Equine-Assisted Mental Health for Healing Trauma, Edited by Kay Sudekum Trotter and Jennifer N. Baggerly, was just released this fall. EFW-Canada has some representation in it and Sarah Schlote, an EFW-Canada member, contributed to the first two chapters of this book. Congratulations Sarah for this wonderful contribution!
She spoke to the integration of Somatic Experiencing and attachment theory into equine-assisted trauma recovery (with an emphasis on how trauma-informed care principles should apply to both the humans and the animals in EAPL programs, in keeping with EFW-Canada's philosophy of ethics and equine welfare) and the structural dissociation in equine-assisted trauma therapy.
