September is FIRST RESPONDER MONTH in light of Patriot Day, September 11th. #NeverForget
New for 2016, the Stable Responder Project will serve our first responders and healthcare providers. Solutions for Burnout in the Workplace, Compassion Fatigue, PTSD symptom control and more will be addressed in the arena with the horses. Paralleling our Stable Survivors Veterans Project, it is our Goal to provide these services At No Charge to our participants. Our responders need to come First – without them, there can be no help for others in crisis. The EAGALA Model of equine assisted psychotherapy has been very beneficial for our veterans – it is now time to assist our local responders with respite, renewal and self-discovery. Sponsor a responder today! (See below)
Please help us provide the utmost in care for our First Responders – you can help by donating directly (click here: Shop/Donate/Volunteer), or volunteering your valuable time to assist in kicking off this important Project for our community. We are seeking Grant Writers and licensed mental health professionals versed in first responder care. If you qualify, or just want to help, please Contact Us!
For this Project, we concluded an important Pilot Project December 2014….
With the information gained, we will have groups of up to 6 people for 2 hours per session. A sponsorship for one first responder is only $75!
We’ve also designed a 6 hour course for continuing education credits, which will assist our responders and healthcare providers tremendously, allowing them to continue on their career path in helping others. A sponsorship for one person (for a group less than 6 participants) to attend the 6 hour course is $145.
Help Healing Arenas help our community!
We are organizing “Compassionate Patient Care” to be taught as an elective at Modesto Junior College in the near future. This course mirrors the current “Medicine and Horsemanship” course at Stanford University, taught be Dr. Beverly Kane, to pre-med students.
