Presented by Transformance Journal author Carrie Ruggieri, LMHC, BCETS
This is a recording of a live event held on Friday March 22, 2019
Ms. Ruggieri’s Transformance Talk was based on her astounding, intelligent and deeply moving article which has 4 parts:
The Talk: Part One: a historical introduction to the centrality of the horse-human relationship starting 7,000 years ago, when a human first mounted a horse, altering the course of human evolution. … Our continuing bond with the horse remains one of the few links to our finely hewn right-brain ancestral history … laid dormant over the course of time. AEDP meta-psychology is uniquely positioned to help us understand what we have lost as our evolution carried us further from the Eurasian Steppe, and has a methodology to reclaim and vitalize these capacities.
Part Two introduces the incorporation of AEDP into Equine Assisted Therapy (EAP), and illuminates the perfect mapping of each onto the other.
Part Three is a review of the horse/herd mentality, which supplies the therapeutic tools for AEDP-Informed EAP; this part of the article gives special attention to the transformational affect, awe, ubiquitous to the horse-human experience.
Part Four is a transcription of a client’s account of her healing experience in equine therapy.
