Four Hour CEU EAL Training for Licensed Mental Health Professionals and other Mental Health Professionals “Under Supervision for Licensure”.



We recently provided a four hour continuing education equine assisted learning seminar for ten local mental health professionals.  The goals of the seminar included learning objectives regarding the integration of prevention and intervention theories based in a trio of constructs:

  • Eric Erickison’s stages of childhood and adolescent development,
  • H Stephen Glenn and Jane Nelson’s work in prevention and early intervention for addiction and other maladjustment behaviors & syndromes,
  • Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence (4-Quadrants)

The ranch, with its fire-pit consultation setting, worked very well for both initial didactic work and post exercise processing.  This group of mental health professionals brought varied levels of prior experience with our equine partners.  The mixture of experience with horses lent itself to effective team work and affirmation for learning at all levels.  The feedback included positive comments regarding training in our ranch setting, including the sense of stimulation, relaxation and effectiveness.  “A positive alternative to sitting in a conference room setting for four hours!”

If you are interested in scheduling similar training for your group, or other equine assisted learning seminars such as “team enhancement/building,” “organizational goal setting,” “strengthening communications and problem solving skills,” please contact us to arrange a services.  We are flexible regarding days of the week to include Saturdays.  It is our effort to accommodate individuals’ and organizations’ needs.  Our accommodation commonly include plenty of refreshments and other personal resources.  Lunch or other time appropriate meals are typically a part of our contracted services.

We look forward to hearing about you and or your groups interest in designing training to meet your unique individual or organizational needs.  Paul Tobin, Ph.D.
