Tonight's special guest is April Marie Loposky from Pennsylvania, founder of Marley's Mission, a "Horses Healing Children" non-profit organization that provides equine-based therapy free of charge to children, and their families, who have experienced trauma. Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) has shown evidenced-based efficacy in patients who have experience abuse and now suffer with depression, anxiety and other symptoms as a result of abuse. Research and observational findings have shown EAP yields a variety of psychotherapeutic benefits such as: confidence; self-efficacy; self-concept; communication; anxiety reduction, and most importantly… trust. Marley's Mission currently has seven horses as well as the use of stables and fields in Lake Ariel, PA. Marley's Mission employs a team approach to healing children who have experienced trauma. The treatment team includes a specially trained Trauma Therapist and an Equine Specialist. See the web site at: www.marleysmission.com
