About the Course:
PTSD is a particularly prominent mental health condition experienced by military members and veterans. In addition to other barriers to evidence-based treatment, veterans are particularly affected by stigmatization of mental health disorders and with their treatment. Consequently, there has been growing interest in the utility of `adjunct’ therapy interventions to help counteract the stigma associated with mental health treatment. One such approach is equine-assisted treatment. This article presents a study concerning the potential benefits of veterans and their partners.
