EAA and EAT: A Part of An Integrated Model of Care for Military Veterans and Active Duty Service Members
An integrated model of care, including equine-assisted activities (EAA) and equine-assisted therapies (EAT) has the potential to positively impact military populations. As professionals in EAAT, it is imperative to not just understand what an integrated model of care consists of but to respect scope of practice laws and title and term protections. Each specialty in EAAT offers its own unique participant benefits. To protect each specialty and program participants served, it is important to recognize the uses and key differences between EAA and EAT service types and to critically evaluate their current state for research related to military populations.
