Abstract

This pilot study explores the Natural Lifemanship Trauma-Focused Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy Model. Connecting trauma studies and other forms of bottom-up regulation, this study positions equine-assisted psychotherapy as a potential trauma intervention method. The Behavioral Assessment System for Children (BASC) was used to measure changes in client participant feelings and behaviors over an eight-week period. The changes produced via t-scores demonstrate that there was a decrease in anxiety, depression and somatization as well as an increase in adaptability.
