This interactive webinar will present and practice the use of therapeutic cards and how to utilize Eagala facilitation skillsets to provide impactful experiences which can enhance the time in the arena, or be used when you can't be in the arena live with horses.


Hour 1 is about discussing the theoretical foundations of working with therapeutic cards (positive psychology, the narrative approach) and the methodology to incorporate working with the cards to strengthen the therapeutic process in general, and in using the Eagala Model.


We will demonstrate how using the therapeutic cards when working with the Eagala Model can help the facilitators better understand the client’s inner world, motivate and strengthen the client’s ability to take responsibility for the process, and help both facilitators and the client process in a different and direct way what happened in the arena with the real horses.


Hour 2 is demonstrating the new online platform to utilize the Horse Path therapeutic cards, and ways to incorporate them in a telehealth session. 


The Horse Path therapeutic cards contain 76 pictures that capture a wide range of situations in the herd’s life while living in their natural habitat, and were chosen to enable clients to use them as metaphors to situations encountered in life.
