About this Webinar:

We have all had a participant that we think would benefit tremendously from equine-assisted services, but isn’t quite sure about interactions with a 1,200 lb live animal. Together, Kaiti an occupational therapist and Kelly a mental health practitioner, will discuss what potential triggers might be, how to work through them and how the process of working through change can be very beneficial and impactful for our participants. This webinar is meant to serve as a guide for thought for instructors and therapists, not for specific treatment strategies.

Objectives of this webinar

Identify how to evaluate for difficulty with change and potential resistance.

  • Identify factors potentially contributing to resistance.
  • Learn how to set goals for resistance to change.
  • Explore ways to help those with resistance to change work toward established goals.
