STABLE Series on 2nd Saturdays – free event

March 9 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

The Resiliency and Justice Center (formerly the VSRC), and The Stable Arena present a FREE STABLE Series.
You are invited to join Terri, Laura, and the Herd come be valued and protected in a series that will demonstrate how working with horses can help you chart a course to healing.
Just being near horses can reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure and heart rate, alleviate stress, and create an increased sense of wellbeing. Therapy with horses can be especially helpful to those who have experienced trauma or difficult life experiences.
Variations will be offered each time, although similar information will be provided for the benefit of those attending for the first time. Examples of activities include grooming, walking, observing, haltering, ground exercises, photos, or even painting. Descriptions of Arena EMDR will also be included each time, as will demonstrations whenever possible.
There are several life skills that can be learned with horses in a way that is engaging, natural and safe. Examples include identifying and coping with feelings, self-regulation, setting boundaries, building confidence, forming healthy relationships with others, and increase a positive sense of self.
Terri Keener, LCSW/Certified EMDR Therapist, and Laura Higgins, Equine Specialist, will facilitate this time to enjoy the outdoors, connect and learn. Terri and Laura collaborate with the Helpful Herd to form The Stable Arena where they specialize in equine assisted learning, therapy and EMDR for survivors of mass violence, victims of crime, first responders, emergency response personnel, military and veterans.
*Please dress for the outdoor setting and wear closed toe shoes (no steel toes). Due to weather and other circumstances, the exact time and location for these sessions may change. For any questions, feel free to call Laura at 702-768-2336.
