EAL Training & Certification:
2013 EAL 3 Day Training & Certification Sessions :
Scheduled: Friday and Saturday October 25 & 26 and Saturday, November 9
Note that I have had several requests for additional training. We can schedule trainings around your dates with a minimum of 6 participants and no more than 10.
Day 1: Meet at our home facility N7394 N. Brusewitz Rd. Black Creek, WI. We will spend the first half of the day in the arena experiencing equine-assisted learning. You will engage in a variety of activities and challenges with the horses to understand EAL. Then we will have lunch and spend the rest of the day in a classroom setting learning about the underlying theory and concepts of the Pegasus Approach. We will go over the ethical code and basic principles. Remember! The Pegasus Approach is research based and outcome oriented -not just a "feel good" approach!
Day 2: We will spend the first half of this day in the classroom identifying those areas of interest to you and learning about the specifics of the consumer group you are interested in serving: autism and other developmental issues, domestic abuse, leadership, empowerment. The Pegasus Approach is a generalist approach that lends itself to many different issues depending on your background and needs. At this session you will be given assistance in where to go for information to write your paper about your client/consumer group. Following lunch we will again be in the barn learning, facilitating and experiencing activities and talking and thinking about how they would be kept the same and/or modified depending on your client/consumer group.
Day 3: We will spend the day in the barn presenting the information from your papers, doing activities with you as the facilitator and further developing your skills.
