Have you thought about incorporating horses into your practice? In addition to loving horses there are many factors to consider if you want to include them in your work. Naomi Rossthorn, a registered psychologist, has the hoofprints – theory and practicalities – for incorporating horses into your psychology or therapy practice, and partnering with therapy horses for human wellness.
In 2010, Naomi developed an adjunct trauma sensitive Experiential Horse Therapy Program for those affected by the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria, Australia. The program was delivered to children, adolescents, and adults.
Since then, she has developed and co-facilitated Equine-Assisted Therapy and Psychology programs for children and adolescents exposed to complex
family environments, as well as trauma-sensitive programs for people affected by natural disasters, including bush fire affected communities and more recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. A wealth of experience is delivered here in Hoofprints.
