Understanding the role of the equine professional in equine-assisted psychotherapy, learning, and coaching sessions is highly important for ethical, clinical, and financial reasons. Critical considerations include:
- Should the equine professional (EP) attend intakes?
- What kind of questions can or should they ask of the client?
- What makes a person qualified to be an EP? What is their responsibility with the horse and the client?
- How should they communicate with the therapist during and after sessions if they have insights, questions, or concerns about the session?
- What are some ethical concerns specific to the role of the EP?
In this webinar, recorded on May 15th, 2020, Tim Jobe and Bettina Shultz-Jobe, NL co-founders, and Reccia Jobe, equine professional and co-founder of Pecan Creek Ranch, answer these questions and more. The presenters have collectively worked with hundreds of clients and with many different EPs and therapists. They all believe in the richness of the team approach and are excited to share their experience and resources.
