Read What Others Have to Say about the Clinical Immersion

To watch the sessions unfold in a very peaceful, relaxed manner, waiting for the next thing, waiting for the opportunity and the teachable moment, all of these things took a lot of the pressure off of me being new to this work, understanding that something will happen, something valuable will happen.- Toni Connor (EP)

[It helped] seeing all the different ways the horses help. Sometimes its in the round pen, sometimes its attaching, sometimes its just standing next to someone. And all of the different ways the horses let the therapy team know once an important issue has been addressed, some of that was incredible! There were so many different ways the horses were a part of the therapy team and I hadn’t really experienced that before. - Debbie Blackmon (Therapist and NLC-P,EP student)
