What is Equine-Connected Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EC-EMDR)?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective, extensively researched method for helping people recover from trauma. The EMDR treatment protocol requires extensive training. For information about becoming trained in EMDR, or about EMDR in general, please visit the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).

The Natural Lifemanship process of Trauma-Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy can be utilized by EMDR and NL trained mental health professionals who wish to conduct EMDR with the help of the client’s therapy horse. We call this process, “Equine-Connected EMDR” (EC-EMDR).

Who should take this course?

Anyone wanting to learn more about EC-EMDR may take this online course. Our in-person EC-EMDR training is limited to EMDR trained/NL trained mental health professionals and their EPs.

Who can practice EC-EMDR?

EMDR trained* mental health professionals who are also trained in Natural Lifemanship, and their EPs (as members of the therapy team).
