New Resource Connecting You With Authors of PATH Intl. Strides!
Katy Schroeder, Ph.D., NCC, Assistant Professor, Department of Animal and Food Sciences, Texas Tech University
Kandis Cazenave, B.S, Graduate Student, Department of Animal and Food Sciences, Texas Tech University
Katy and Kandis are authors of, The ESMHL’s Tool Box: An Activity for Selecting Herd Members for EFP and EAL Sessions, an article in the Spring 2018 issue of PATH Intl. Strides. As the equine experts of the facilitation team, Equine Specialists in Mental Health and Learning (ESMHLs) are responsible for contributing their knowledge about equine behavior, communication and psychology to mental health practitioners and educators, as well as helping these practitioners design appropriate equine-assisted activities. Equines involved in EAAT have diverse talents and strengths; some may shine in one activity, while others could feel overwhelmed by the very same activity. Therefore, determining how and when to incorporate a member of your herd into different types of EAL/EFP sessions requires thoughtful planning. Along these lines, conducting a structured evaluation of equine behavior can be a valuable tool for assessing which of your equine partners are ready to assist you in an EFP or EAL session.
