Graduate Diploma in Equine-Assisted Therapy & Prosocial Coaching: Communication and Emotions

Introduction

The postgraduate course in Equine-Assisted Therapy & Prosocial Coaching is a programme aimed at graduates and professionals within the ambit of psychology, anthropology, education, healthcare and business.

This course hopes to provide theoretical-practical training in the areas of prosociality and equine-assisted therapy, and to empower its participants to develop any form of prosocial intervention with a systemic focus.

The programme is structured in such a way that unites equine-assisted therapy and prosociality, because of the mutual strength of both theoretical frameworks in their practical and professional dimensions. The objective is to enable participants to apply and transfer these processes and techniques to their own ambits of professional interest so as to allow them to facilitate processes of empowerment, self-diagnosis and self-training in others.

Objectives

- Learn the different modes of equine therapies, their benefits and their contraindications.
- Acquire the knowledge necessary to use horses as a resource in teaching, therapy and rehabilitation.
- Learn to apply the different interventions at the psycho-educational level.
- Learn the risks of incorrectly using equine therapy techniques.

- Learn the pathologies and disorders that can be treated using therapeutic horseback riding and social equine-assisted therapy.
- Promote and facilitate the self-diagnosis of communication styles and personal optimisation design in participants.
- Introduce students to prosocial coaching in different contexts: teaching and learning, the family, organisations and work.
- Design, develop and apply personal plans for prosocial optimisation in participants' chosen contexts.
- Learn and apply focus-group and visualisation techniques to generate participation from a prosocial, didactic perspective.
